Cleveland, Ohio – April 30, 2008 — The United States Customs and Immigration Service and the Social Security Administration now recognize Crimcheck™ as a DESIGNATED AGENT under the e-Verify Program (Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements). This program is national in scope, and Crimcheck™ provides services under this program.
- e-Verify ensures that only entitled non-citizen applicants receive federal, state, or local public benefits and licenses.
- I-9 Verifications are performed to determine immigration status
- VISA Verifications are performed
- Applicable to many clients, but particularly to those hiring with or under government contracts: contractors, health care, transportation, agriculture, hospitality, other industries
The e-Verify Program is an intergovernmental, information-sharing initiative designed to aid eligibility workers in determining a non-citizen applicant’s immigration status, with the purpose to ensure that only entitled non-citizen applicants receive federal, state, or local public benefits and licenses. The e-Verify Program is an information service for benefit-issuing agencies, institutions, licensing bureaus, and other entities. The e-Verify Program does not make determinations on any non-citizen applicant’s eligibility for a specific benefit or license.
Under the e-Verify Program a non-citizen is never denied a benefit or license based solely upon the response from an Initial Verification. An Additional Verification (automated or manual) procedure is in place as a precautionary measure.
Clients, please note: Procedures under this program are tight, narrow and strict. Please inquire and discuss this with Ryan Sherman, Operations Manager, in advance, so that requirements are understood and met. For more on this email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 440-816-9920.
