E-Verify is an Internet-based system operated by the U.S Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA) that allows employers to verify the employment authorization of employees. E-Verify checks the information provided on an employee’s I-9 form electronically against records contained in DHS and SSA’s databases.

Effective 11/23/2012, all hires will be processed through E-Verify. Per the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) executive order, existing employees paid from a federal contract will also be processed through E-Verify.
