Current Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, Remains Valid After August 31, 2012

Release Date:

Did you hear? Until further notice, employers should continue using the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, that is currently available on the USCIS forms page. Although this current version of the Form I-9 shows the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number expiration date of August 31, 2012, this Form I-9 is still valid. We are currently in the process of updating the Form I-9, and will provide updated information about the new version as it becomes available.

There are a several steps to issuing a new Form I-9. With your help, we are well along the way in the process. Here is what we have done so far:

  • We invited your comments on proposed revisions to the Form I-9. 
  • We reviewed your comments then made some changes to the proposed Form I-9.

  • We published a notice in the Federal Register on August 22 to inform you of the latest version of the proposed form and invite further comments.
What’s next? The form is reviewed and once approved, the new form will be made available for you to use. We will let you know when. Please subscribe to I-9 Central to receive Form I-9 updates.

Employers must complete Form I-9 for all newly-hired employees to verify their identity and authorization to work in the United States. For more information, or to obtain Form I-9 and the Handbook for Employers in English or Spanish, visit I-9 Central.
