USCIS Extends the Validity of the Form I-9

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently announced that the current version of the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form February 2, 2009 will remain valid beyond the June 30, 2009 expiration date listed on the form.

USCIS has requested that the Office of Management and Budget approve the continued use of the current Form I-9.  While this request is pending, the Form I-9 will not expire.

The Service will update the I-9 when the extension is approved. In the interim, employers will be able to use either the Form I-9 with the new revision date or the Form I-9 with the February 2, 2009 revision date at the bottom of the form.
