E-Verify is a free electronic employment eligibility system co-managed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA). After completing their Form I-9 obligations, employers enrolled E-Verify query DHS and SSA records to verify the employment authorization and social security number (SSN) of each new employee. While many E-Verify employers join voluntarily, certain federal contractors are required to use the program.
