New I-9 Form

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a new I-9 form. By January 23, 2017 this form should be used exclusively. Until January 23, 2017, the old form (Expiration date 8/31/16) may be used.

We are providing both a paper copy of the form you may print and a fillable form that can be completed on your computer. You will find these forms on our website.
According to USCIS, there are several changes in the new version to help reduce technical errors, including:
  • Section 1 asks for “other last names used” rather than “other names used,” and streamlines certification for certain foreign nationals.
  • The addition of prompts to ensure information is entered correctly.
  • The ability to enter multiple preparers and translators.
  • A dedicated area for including additional information rather than having to add it in the margins.
  • A supplemental page for the preparer/translator.
In addition, the instructions for completing the Form I-9 are now separate from the form and include specific instructions for completing each field.

According to USCIS, the revised Form I-9 is easier to complete on a computer. Enhancements include drop-down lists and calendars for filling in dates, on-screen instructions for each field, easy access to the full instructions and an option to clear the form and start over. When the employer prints the completed form, a quick response (QR) code is automatically generated, which can be read by most QR readers.
