Federal I-9 Form Revised for 2017


The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published a revised version of the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. By January 22, 2017, employers must use only the new version, dated 11/04/2016.

Among the changes in the new version, Section 1 asks for the "other last names used," and streamlines certification for certain foreign nationals.

Other changes include:

  • 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.
  • The instructions have been separated from the form, in line with other USCIS forms, and include specific instructions for completing each field.
  • Enhanced form completion using a computer, including drop-down menus, calendars, and on-screen instructions.

You can find the form and additional information on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website.
