U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced the launch of a new web site designed for employees, called myE-Verify. The site is described as a “one-stop shop” for employees to open and manage a personal account giving them access to employment-related identity protection services.

myE-Verify is being rolled-out to individuals in five states: Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Mississippi, and Virginia - and the District of Columbia. Besides residing in one of these locations, the user must also complete a Self Check with a result of "Work Authorization Confirmed."

If the user is unable to complete Self Check, they cannot set up a myE-Verify account at this time.

is meant to be a free and secure way for workers to participate in the E-Verify process by accessing features dedicated for employees. It is currently equipped with these three services:

1. myE-Verify accounts - a free personal account to manage use of one’s information in E-Verify and Self Check;

2. Self Lock - allows individuals to place a “lock” on their social security number (SSN) to help prevent unauthorized or fraudulent use of their SSN by another person to illegally obtain employment authorization within E-Verify. If their SSN is used, it will result in a Self Lock mismatch. Self Lock will remain active for 1 year and individuals can unlock their SSN any time a new employer needs to verify their employment eligibility in E-Verify; and

3. myResources - a multimedia library for employees with these components: Employee Rights Toolkit , Your Rights with myE-Verify, Your Employer’s Responsibilities , and Privacy is Our Commitment .

According to USCIS, the following features are planned for release at a later date:
-Document Expiration Reminders, to set up alerts when a document (like a passport or driver’s license) is about to expire.
-Case Tracker, to allow a user to track the status of their E-Verify or Self Check and know if any action is required.
-Case History, to allow a user to monitor where and when their information has been used in the E-Verify system.

    These are good ideas and should help. However, while everyone is worried about protecting their social security number, I worked fraud cases with the INS where people were purposely selling their social security number and green card number. Counterfeit cards are more difficult to detect when the counterfeiter has access to the identities of legal residents or citizens. In recent years immigration has added pictures of green card holders to computerized records, but if an employer encounters a counterfeit document with someone else's identity, it will be difficult to spot as fraudulent.
