Update: New I-9 Form Released

On July 17, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a new Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. The new Form I-9 is available on the USCIS website: https://www.uscis.gov/i-9-central.

Employers will be able to use this revised version immediately. Employers can continue using the Form I-9 with a revision date of 11/14/16 up to 9/17/17. Starting September 18, all employers must use the revised form with a revision date of 7/17/17 for all new employees.

The revisions are minor; employers will not need to change their processes.

Revisions related to the List of Acceptable Documents on Form I-9:

  • The Consular Report of Birth Abroad (Form FS-240) has been added to List C.
  • All the certifications of report of birth issued by the Department of State (Form FS-545, Form DS-1350, and Form FS-240) have been combined into selection C#2 in List C.

All List C documents except the Social Security card have been renumbered.
