U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) plans to dispose of E-Verify records that are more than 10 years old on April 1, 2022. (USCIS defined “more than 10 years old” as “those dated on or before Dec. 31, 2011.) E-Verify employers have until March 31, 2022, to download case information from the Historic Records Report if they want to retain information about these E-Verify cases, USCIS said.
USCIS noted that employers must record the E-Verify case verification number on the corresponding Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, or attach a copy of the case details page to the I-9 form. Employers should retain the Historic Records Report with the I-9 forms.
