I-9 - Employment Eligibility Verification

Free  |  Updated

Use this required form for every employee to verify legal employment eligibility. The USCIS will only accept the 11/14/16 edition of this form. You can find the edition date at the bottom of the page on the form. Use these I-9 - Employment Eligibility Verification - Instructions​ or I-9 - Employment Eligibility Verification - Instructions - Spanish​​ to assist you in properly completing the ​Form I-9. ​​

Note: There was a problem with the USCIS’s initial release of the Form I-9 on 11/14/16. If an employee completed and printed Section 1 using a computer, numbers entered in the SSN field were transposed. Employers should review their form to ensure their employees’ Social Security numbers (SSN) appear correctly in Section 1. You can find more information here.
