U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced on April 1, 2022, that it will dispose of E‑Verify records that are more than 10 years old, which are those dated on or before December 31, 2011. E-Verify employers have until May 5, 2022, to download case information from the Historic Records Report, USCIS said.

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 Form I‑9. Employers should retain the Historic Records Report with the Forms I‑9, the agency said.
