Washington, D.C. On March 14, 2018 U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that E-Verify will transfer all case data to a new interface later this month. To assist in the transition USCIS required all open cases must reach a final case result and be closed.
Open cases that have not been accessed for more than 365 days will be closed by E-Verify, but will remain accessible to employers as completed or historical cases. Cases that have received a final result (Employment Authorized, Final Non-Confirmation) will be closed but will remain accessible to employers as completed or historical cases. Users are encouraged to complete and close their cases prior to the deployment date.
Open cases that are not completed, but were accessed within the last 365 days will remain open for the employer to continue processing.
Final Case Results
To complete the E-Verify process, a case must receive a final case result and then you must close it. E-Verify guides you through the process after you receive a final case result. The four possible final case results:
- Employment Authorized – The employee’s information matched DHS and/or SSA records.
- DHS or SSA Final Non-Confirmation – E-Verify cannot verify an employee’s employment eligibility after the employee visited SSA or contacted DHS.
- DHS No Show – The employee did not contact DHS within the required eight federal government workdays.
- Error: Close case and resubmit – This case cannot continue because the expiration date entered for the employee’s U.S. passport, passport card or driver’s license is incorrect. This case must be resubmitted in E-Verify.
