Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says people in Virginia and the District, Arizona, Idaho and Colorado can use the E-Verify self-check system to ask the government to correct any information that may be wrong in the Department of Homeland Security or Social Security Administration files.

The program, run by DHS and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, had previously only been available to employers trying to verify the legal work status of employees.

Napolitano said the self-check program is expected to expand to all other states in 12 months.
