E-Verify Records from 2005 to Be Deleted; Available for Download through Dec. 31
In January of 2015, the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began a new practice of deleting E-Verify transaction records that are more than 10 years old. As a result, employers lost access in E-Verify to cases created prior to Dec. 31, 2004, unless data was downloaded using USCIS’s new Historic Records Report prior to December 31 of the prior year. For employers who want to maintain data from 2005, the Report must be downloaded before Dec. 31, 2015. Employers that were not using E-Verify on or before December 31, 2005, need not download the report.
The process of deleting transaction records more than 10 years old will occur annually, according to USCIS. For more information and guidance on downloading, USCIS provides a Fact Sheet and Instructions for employers.
