Driver’s License Verification

More than 80% of employees present a driver’s license or state-issued identification (ID) card as proof of identity for Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Employers enter information from their new hires’ Form I-9 into E-Verify and create a case. E-Verify compares that information against records available to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

For Employers

This two-part verification helps reduce identity document-based fraud by validating the information on certain identity documents in addition to the employment authorization check. This gives you even greater confidence in E-Verify.
