The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is inviting all current E-Verify users to join the E-Verify Tutorial Listening Session on Tuesday, October 25, 2016, from 11:00:00 AM PDT to 12:00:00 PM Pacific / 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern.

E-Verify users attending the E-Verify Tutorial Listening Session will have the opportunity to give feedback about their experience with the current E-Verify tutorial and how the USCIS might improve it. Questions asked about the tutorial will include:

  • What can the USCIS do to improve the E-Verify tutorial?
  • What is the most confusing element of the E-Verify tutorial?
  • How much more or less detail should the E-Verify tutorial have?
  • What would the ideal E-Verify tutorial look like?
  • How can the USCIS meet expectations of the E-Verify tutorial?

E-Verify users should register soon to participate in the session since space is limited. Registrants will receive a confirmation email containing additional details needed to join the session. Click here to register for the E-Verify Tutorial Listening Session.

E-Verify is an Internet-based system that compares information from an employee’s Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Social Security Administration (SSA) records to confirm employment eligibility.

According to the USCIS – the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States – E-Verify is used by more than 600,000 employers nationwide at more than 1.9 million hiring sites. To learn more, visit
