Dear Public Service Director,

If you're hunting for a job, you'll want to use every tool you can to ensure that you're eligible. Since Self Check, a free, Internet-based application that can be used by anyone in the U.S. over the age of 16 to confirm his or her employment eligibility was launched less than one year ago, the most frequent question being asked has been, "When will this be available in my state?" The good news is, the wait is over. Self Check is now available nationwide in both English and Spanish. Now, job hunters in every state can use Self Check to confirm their employment eligibility status.

Self Check brings benefits to both U.S. workers and businesses. It gives U.S. workers access to their employment eligibility status and takes the mystery out of the employment eligibility confirmation process. If a mismatch occurs with your employment eligibility records, Self Check tells you how to resolve that issue prior to taking a job. Self Check helps businesses by providing U.S. workers with the opportunity to ensure employment authorization records are accurate before getting a job. It improves employee understanding of the employment eligibility process.

Please let job hunters in your community know about Self Check by publishing the enclosed PSA from the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Additionally, please let us know if you would like a custom size.

Self Check is part of E-Verify, a Department of Homeland Security program administered by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in partnership with the Social Security Administration. E-Verify is used by many employers to verify the employment eligibility of their new employees. Self Check was developed in response to a request by Congress to create a service through which U.S. workers could check their own employment eligibility status. It is the first service offered directly to the U.S. workforce by the E-Verify Program. For more information, please visit

If you have any questions, or would like more information regarding this PSA, please contact Rebecca Woolf at WestGlen Communications at or 800-325-8677 x222.

Thank you for your consideration of this public service message.
