E-Verify CASE STATUS

You can use E-Verify case tracker to follow the status of your E-Verify case.

In most cases when an employer creates an E-Verify case, E-Verify responds with “Employment Authorized” within seconds. When this happens, the E-Verify process is complete

However, your employer may inform you that your E-Verify case received a Tentative Nonconfirmation (mismatch). A mismatch means that the information your employer entered in E-Verify from your Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, did not match available records. If your case received a mismatch result, your employer should provide you with a Further Action Notice which describes important steps for you to follow. You can use E-Verify Case Status to see the status of your case in progress.

How to Use E-Verify Case Tracker

To access the Case Tracker feature, you do not need a myE-Verify account. However, if you have one, you may use this feature whether logged in to your account or not.

To track a case, you must first have your E-Verify case number. Find this number on the Further Action Notice that your employer gave you if you receive a Tentative Nonconfirmation (mismatch). Begin by entering your 15 digit E-Verify case number in the Track Case Number field in the myE-Verify case tracker field and click the magnifying glass to search.

There are eight different responses you may receive when you use the Case Tracker. Below are the possible responses:

  1. Employment Authorization Confirmed – E-Verify has confirmed that you are authorized to work in the United States.
  2. E-Verify Needs More Time - E-Verify needs additional time to verify your employment eligibility. Your case has been referred for further verification. No action is necessary at this point.
  3. SSA Tentative Nonconfirmation (mismatch) - Your information did not match records available to the Social Security Administration (SSA). Additional action is required.
  4. DHS Tentative Nonconfirmation (mismatch) – Your information did not match records available to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Additional action is required.
  5. Employer Action Required – The employer must take additional action in E-Verify before the verification process can continue.
  6. Employment Authorization Not Confirmed – Unfortunately, E-Verify cannot confirm that you are authorized to work in the United States at this time.
  7. Case Referred to SSA – Your employer has referred your case to the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you would like to resolve this case, you must visit an SSA field office within 8 Federal Government working days of the date your case was referred to begin resolving the Tentative Nonconfirmation (mismatch).
    • If you see this response, your employer should have provided you with the Further Action Notice and the Referral Date Confirmation from E-Verify. The SSA Further Action Notice includes information about your E Verify case, and which documents you need when you visit SSA. The Referral Date Confirmation provides the date by which you must visit SSA. To help with resolving the mismatch, you should bring the SSA Further Action Notice when you visit an SSA field office. Federal Government working days are Monday through Friday except for federal holidays.
  8. Your employer has referred your case to DHS. If you would like to resolve this case, you must contact DHS within 8 Federal Government working days of the date your case was referred to begin resolving your Tentative Nonconfirmation (mismatch).
    • If you see this response, your employer should have provided you the Further Action Notice and the Referral Date Confirmation from E-Verify. The DHS Further Action Notice includes information about your E-Verify case. The Referral Date Confirmation provides the date by which you must call DHS. To help with resolving the mismatch, you should have the DHS Further Action Notice when you call DHS. Federal Government working days are Monday through Friday except for federal holidays.
