New I-9 Form Available for Employers

The U.S. Department of Citizenship and Immigration Services has revised the I-9 Form (that’s the Employment Eligibility Verification Form that all employers must have for employees hired after November 6, 1986.

The new form is available here (you’ll need Adobe Reader).

There are changes to what documents may be used for proof of eligibility to work in the United States:

Five documents have been removed from List A of the List of Acceptable Documents:

Certificate of U.S. Citizenship (Form N-560 or N-561) Certificate of Naturalization (Form N-550 or N-570) Alien Registration Receipt Card (I-151) Unexpired Reentry Permit (Form I-327) Unexpired Refugee Travel Document (Form I-571)

One document was added to List A of the List of Acceptable Documents:

Unexpired Employment Authorization Document (I-766)

All Employment Authorization Documents with photographs have been consolidated as one item on List A:

I-688, I-688A, I-688B, I-766

Instructions regarding Section 1 of the Form I-9 now indicate that the employee is not obliged to provide his or her Social Security number in Section 1 of the Form I-9, unless he or she is employed by an employer who participates in E-Verify.


  1. Employers may now sign and retain Forms I-9 electronically.
