On June 13, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) launched a redesigned E-Verify website. E-Verify is the web-based system operated by USCIS (in partnership with the Social Security Administration) that allows participating employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of newly-hired employees. The re-engineering effort was designed to improve the user experience, minimize errors, support compliance with the terms of use, and enable real-time validation of employers enrolling in E-Verify against commercial data. The redesign includes a new home page, a new “case alerts” feature, improved case management, and streamlined tutorials.

Existing E-Verify users are generally required to complete the updated tutorial during their first login after June 13. The tutorial takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and serves as a “how to” introduction to the new system.
