The USCIS recently indicated that more than 500,000 companies are now participating in the E-Verify program. The USCIS indicated that since it was established, E-Verify has experienced exponential growth, increased accuracy and high customer satisfaction ratings. The USCIS indicated that 98.8% of work-authorized employees are automatically confirmed instantly or within 24 hours through the E-Verify program, requiring no further employee or employer action. The USCIS also stated that that users gave E-Verify a score of 86 out of 100 on the 2012 American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) survey. This contrasts to an average score of 67 for all governmental agencies. During fiscal year 2013, USCIS stated that employers used E-verify more than 25 million times.
