The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in late August approved revisions to the federal Employment Verification Form I-9 and gave the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) 90 days to release the new form.
The note sent to USCIS by OMB reads: USCIS will, within 90 days, update the I-9 system in order to reflect the new instruments. USCIS will indicate at the bottom of the new form a revision date no later than 90 days from this approval. USCIS may accept the prior version of these instruments for 150 days while technical updates are made.
The new form will feature drop-down menus and other more user-friendly innovations. The expired form is still good until Jan. 21, 2017.
