Employees will access NextGen by creating a secure electronic account in myE-Verify. 

Employers will have access to NextGen in their already established E-Verify account.

After the employer makes a job offer and the employee accepts that offer, the employer will initiate a NextGen case in E-Verify. This allows the employee to then share their personal information and documentation electronically with their employer using their secure myE-Verify account.  The employer will review the information provided, examine the employee’s Form I-9 documents, sign and retain the Form I-9. This process may change as NextGen is further developed.

After the employee accepts a job offer, they will receive a unique link to the NextGen case created by their employer.  The employee will then log in or create an account and enter their biographic information, citizenship or immigration status, and acceptable document(s).  Once the employee submits that information, E-Verify will confirm the employee’s identity and employment eligibility and notify the employer. The employer will finish the verification by examining the documents and retaining the Form I-9. This process may change as NextGen in further developed.
