Form I-9 Instructions 2020

December 25, 2019   |   by Editor

All employees that are working in the United States must complete and submit the Form I-9 to their employers within three days of the hire. This was made mandatory in 1986 with the Immigration Reform and Control Act. This is also mandatory not only for immigrants but for U.S. citizens as well.

Completing Form I-9 is quite simple for both immigrants and the U.S. citizens. However, immigrants must detail a few of the information found on the form. These details include Alien Registration Number/USCIS Number for permanent residents or Form I-94 Admission Number. Here is a step by step guide for completing Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification.

Section 1.

  • Full Name
  • Address
  • Date of Birth
  • Social Security Number
  • Employee’s e-Mail Address and Telephone Number

“I attest, under penalty of perjury, that I am”

Under the text above, you must select your citizenship status which you’ll have four options.

  • A citizen of the United States
  • A noncitizen national of the United States
  • A lawful permanent resident
    • Write down your USCIS Number
  • An alien authorized to work
    • Write down expiration date and your Alien Registration Number / USCIS Number, Form I-94 Admission Number, or Foreign Passport Number and the Country of Issuance.
  • Sign and enter the date of the form’s completion.

The last issued Form I-9 also included a Translator Certification part where an employee who cannot speak English must get help by a preparer or translator and the person who helped them must sign the form as well.

The rest will be completed by the Employer or the Human Resources of the company the employee is working for.
