Social Security Administration Reminds Employers About E-Verify

According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), employers have enrolled to use E-Verify at more than one million worksites. More than 2,500 new employers are enrolling every week. The number of employers enrolled in E-Verify has more than doubled since 2009. E-Verify is administered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the SSA. The program’s focus is always on continuing to improve its performance. E-Verify is improving ever year. In fiscal year (FY) 2011, more than 98% of workers were automatically confirmed as work authorized, instantly or within 24 hours. A U.S. Government Accountability Office report found that E-Verify had reduced mismatches by more than five percentage points from 8% in 2007 to 2.6% in 2009. In FY 2010, that rate went even lower – to 1.7%. E-Verify participation grows dramatically, while the system’s performance improves significantly every year.
