E-Verify to Destroy Old Records

E-Verify LogoE-Verify has announced that effective Jan. 1, 2016, in compliance with the National Archives and Records Administration’s retention and disposal schedule, it will destroy all transaction records older than 10 years.  Thus, all transaction records created prior to Dec. 31, 2005 will be destroyed.  Further, E-Verify will delete, on an annual basis, all transaction records that are more than 10 years old.

E-Verify has created a new Historic Record Report that will include all transaction records over a 10-year period.  If you wish to get the Historic Record Report, it must be downloaded before Dec. 31, 2015.  To download the Report, please log into E-Verify where you will find instructions to download the Report.

It is always recommended as best practice to record the E-Verify case verification number on the related I-9 form.  It is now also recommended that employers also retain the Historic Records Report with the Forms I-9.
