BY: Jyme Mariani, Esq. | 04/04/22

On April 1, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced it will extend its annual disposal date of E-Verify records that are at least 10 years old from April 1 until May 6, 2022 [USCIS, E-Verify Records Disposal Date Extended to May 6, 2022, 4-1-22].

USCIS has created a Historic Records Report, containing transaction records dated on or before December 31, 2011, that E-Verify Program Administrators and Corporate Administrators may download and save. Employers now have until May 5, 2022, to download expiring case information. USCIS has a Fact Sheet and instructions for downloading the reports.

E-Verify requires employers to record, or print and file, the E-Verify case verification numbers for each corresponding Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Employers should retain the Historic Records Report with the corresponding Forms I-9.
