The online E-Verify Self-Check program offered by the United States Customs and Immigration Service (USCIS) has been expanded to 16 more states. Self-Check is open to individuals to verify that government databases contain the correct documentation to authorize them to work in the United States.

The new states are California, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and Washington. As of its initial launch in March 2011, Self-Check was made available in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Mississippi, Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

In addition, Self-Check is now available in Spanish.

Employers, keep your employees informed of their rights and obligations under the E-Verify employment eligibility verification check by obtaining and posting a copy of  our E-Verify Right to Work Notice Poster.
