USCIS Issues New Lawful Permanent Resident Card

USCIS announced that as of today, May 11, 2010, it would be begin to issue a newly redesigned permanent resident card, commonly known as a “green card”.

The redesigned card will offer a more secure format.  USCIS encourages anyone who holds a permanent resident card without an expiration date to apply to replace their cards with the redesigned version.

Employers should also ensure that they are familiar with the new card as employees may be presenting this version as evidence of identity and employment authorization in relation to the Form I-9 and/or E-Verify.
