What Does a “Case in Continuance” Mean in E-Verify?

There are occasions where an employer will submit data to E-Verify but the Social Security Administration might require additional time to complete the verification for that employee. This can happen when documents have been applied for that are pending for issuance – such as a Birth Certificate.

The employee in these cases continues to work although they must visit the Social Security Administration as instructed. The employer will then see the case update to this status and it will remain in “Case in Continuance” until SSA is able to generate a final update.

How Does an Organization Prove E-Verify Participation?

An organization may need to prove their participation in the E-Verify program at some point or may wish
to just keep a recent record on file.

However, it is not the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that proves participation, but rather a
recent printout of the Participating organization’s profile page at www.e-verify.uscis.gov.

Employer agents are able to retrieve this as well as company administrators for each account and per
Department of Homeland Security (DHS), this will serve as proof that the organization is a current
participant of the E-Verify program.

How Can Organizations Keep E-Verify Updated of Changes?

E-Verify requires each participating organization to provide details about their business at the time of
registration. These include physical addresses, any hiring sites, corporate administrators and their
contact information; as well as information on the business type.

However, the program was designed by Department of Homeland Security with the dynamics of business
in mind and these changes are expected through the course of business. Whenever an organization

experiences any changes, it is important to keep the information updated. E-Verify makes this easy to do.

Is E-Verify Required for Federal Contractors?

Since 2008, a federal executive order has required that all federal departments and agencies require their 
contractors to use E-Verify. Additionally, the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) was put in place in late 
2008 with a set of rules and regulations that manage how the government spends funds. 

Generally, a federal contractor must use an electronic system to verify the employment eligibility of their 
workers and those that are under FAR have additional stipulations. Each organization should review their 
obligations but everyone participating in E-Verify can benefit from the program – with or without a 
federal contract.

When Is the Earliest and Latest that E-Verify May Be Used for Employees?

Once an employer begins using E-Verify, the earliest a case may be created for an employee is dependent 
upon the employee having accepted a job offer. This also requires that a Form I-9 has been completed. 

However, a case may not be created before these steps are completed as only data from a completed Form I-9 may be used when verifying the employment eligibility of a worker.

Additionally, the latest that E-Verify may be used is the third business day after an employee has started 
work for pay, along with timely completing a Form I-9. Employers properly following these rules will benefit 

from E-Verify while avoiding various potential issues such as discrimination.

What Could Cause Social Security Administration to Issue a TNC?

Form I-9 data submitted to E-Verify could generate a Tentative Non Confirmation (TNC) for anyone.
If this happens and the case status says “SSA TNC”, it means E-Verify could not verify the data with
records maintained by Social Security Administration (SSA).

In this case, the employee must contest the TNC in order to learn what caused it but there are several
reasons that could result in this situation. The Social Security Administration may not have the most
updated citizenship-status information for the employee, or a name change had occurred without
their knowledge.

Additionally, outdated information in their system or even data-entry errors could cause a non-verification

so an employee wishing to resolve the TNC would have to contest it by visiting SSA within 8 business days.

What Are the Possible Reasons for a DHS Tentative-Non-Confirmation?

If an employee with an E-Verify case receives a TNC (Tentative Non Confirmation) issued from DHS
(Department of Homeland Security), only the employee will know the exact reason once they contest
the TNC by calling DHS.

However, there are a few reasons that could cause this case result such as a name change or spelling
discrepancy. DHS could also issue a TNC if the employee’s legal status has changed – an example would
be a permanent resident employee who eventually became a US Citizen.

Additionally, outdated or incorrect information on documents such as a Passport, Permanent Resident Card,
or Visa could also cause this. Employers can also mistakenly enter incorrect information but if the case was submitted correctly, the employee would have to contest the TNC in order to fully resolve it.
