If you are looking for a job, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) wants to make sure you are ready. Since the agency first launched Self Check less than a year ago, one of the most frequent questions it has received is, “When can I use Self Check in my state?”

USCIS says that the wait is now over. Self Check is now available nationwide in both English and Spanish.

Starting yesterday, job hunters in every state across the country, as well as Washington, D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, will be able to use Self Check to confirm their employment eligibility status.

The service says that more and more employers use E-Verify to confirm their new hires’ work eligibility. Job applicants can use Self Check to confirm their work eligibility, see whether there are any discrepancies in their records, and learn how to fix them before searching for a job.
