E-Verify Systems Records Purge

Starting on January 1, 2015, E-verify transaction records more than 10 years old will be deleted by the E-Verify system. E-Verify users will no longer have access to cases created prior to December 31, 2004. This action is required to comply with the National Archives and Records Administration’s (NARA) retention and disposal schedule.

In order to retain the ability to access cases created prior to December 31, 2004, you must download the newly created Historical Records Report prior to December 31, 2014. The reports will contain all of your transaction records for cases more than 10 years old. Please note that the report will only be available until December 31, 2014. Instructions for downloading the Historical Records Report are available online at: http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/USCIS/Verification/E-Verify/E-Verify_Native_Documents/Instructions_to_Download_NARA_Reports_in_E-Verify.pdf

In order to remain compliant with NARA, the E-Verify system will delete records annually on December 31st. Therefore, we recommend that you record the E-Verify case number on the related Form I-9 and retain the Historical Records Reports with you Forms I-9. If you did not use the E-Verify system before December 31, 2004, there will be no Historical Records Report to download.
