April 3, 2009


As of April 3, 2009, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is requiring all U.S. employers to use the revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification (Rev. 02/02/09). Previous versions of Form I-9 may no longer be used.

To ensure you are using the correct Form I-9, check the revision date printed on the lower right-hand corner of the form, or you can download the revised Form I-9 here for your convenience.

The major changes made to the revised Form I-9 include a revised list of acceptable documents for the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) process, and the specification that expired documents no longer be acceptable forms of identification or employment authorization. These changes were made to improve the effectiveness and security of the Form I-9 process.

We strongly urge you to download the Handbook for Employers - Instructions for Completing Form I-9, as USCIS has updated the handbook to reflect the new requirements of the revised Form I-9.
