“Does E-Verify Require a Social Security Number along with Form I-9 Data?”

Participants in the E-Verify program must provide their employee’s Social Security Numbers in order to 
submit a case. 

The E-Verify program is operated by Department of Homeland Security, but works with 
the cooperation of the Social Security Administration (SSA). In order for SSA to provide a case result 
on any individual’s data, a Social Security Number is required. 

However, employers using E-Verify must only ask employees to provide the number from their Social 
Security Card. Employees continue to have the right of choosing which documents they provide when 

completing a Form I-9 and are not required to provide the Social Security Card itself.
