Each year, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) purges records that are more than ten years old from its E-Verify system.
E-Verify is a web-based system that allows enrolled employers to confirm the eligibility of their newly hired employees to work in the United States. The E-Verify system verifies information provided by employees on the Form I-9 against Social Security Administration (SSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) records.
The next records disposal, which will take place on May 14, 2021, will delete E-Verify records created on or before December 31, 2010. E-Verify employers have until May 14, 2021 to download case information if they want to retain information about these E-Verify cases. Instructions for downloading a Historic Records Report from E-Verify is available here.
Employers are required to record the E-Verify case verification number on the corresponding Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, or alternatively attach a copy of the case details page to Form I-9. If supplementing existing Forms I-9 with historical E-Verify data, employers should retain the Historic Records Report with their affected Forms I-9.
