CREATE AN ACCOUNT
To take advantage of some of the features myE-Verify offers, you must create your secure account. You have to be logged into your account to use the Self Lock and Case History features.
The first step is to complete the Self Check process and receive a response of "Work Authorization Confirmed." Next, you'll complete these four steps to create a myE-Verify account:
- Enter personal information and create a username and password.
- Select security questions that will be used to verify your identity if you lose access to your account.
- Verify that you have access to an email address and a telephone number.
- Pass a quiz to verify your identity (similar to the quiz you took in Self Check).
myE-Verify cares about your privacy, and it adheres to the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) assurance level 3 when confirming your identity. To protect your privacy and ensure the security of your account, the account creation process has several important steps. The process takes about 5-10 minutes to complete.
When you create your account, you must complete a brief quiz to verify your identity before you can finish creating your account. The exact questions generated will be unique to you and could include:
- The state that issued your Social Security number (SSN)
- The last four digits of your SSN
- Phone number
- Household information
- Personal property
- Driver's license number
- Credit questions relating to a mortgage or home equity loan, auto loan, personal installment loan, student loan and credit
To maintain this level of security, you will complete a two-step verification process each time you log in. You must successfully provide your username and password before entering a one-time passcode that you will receive via email, text or voice message.
Instead of your username, you may also choose to use the email address you provided when you created your account. If you forget your password, you may use the security questions you created to log in and reset your password.
After logging in to your account, you will be able to manage your security questions, reset your password, and update your email address and telephone number. You will also have access to the Self Lock and Case History features. Self Lock lets you manage the use of your Social Security number in E-Verify and Self Check to protect your identity from being used for employment-related fraud. Case History lets you see when your personal information was used in Self Check and E-Verify, adding more transparency to E-Verify and identity protection to employees and job seekers.
