USCIS REMINDS EMPLOYERS THAT ONLY UNRESTRICTED SOCIAL SECURITY CARDS ARE ACCEPTABLE FOR I-9 PURPOSES


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has reminded employers that they may accept only unrestricted Social Security cards for Form I-9 employment authorization verification purposes and has updated the I-9 form accordingly.

If the Social Security card has one of the following restrictions, USCIS said the employer should ask the employee to provide a different document showing work authorization:

  • Not valid for employment;

  • Valid for work only with INS authorization

  • Valid for work only with DHS authorization

For more details, see the bulletin.
