I-9 Central – Form I-9 Documents Pertaining to Citizenship Categories
a previous entry on this blog you are already aware of the new DHS
I-9 Central website. You may not be aware of the chart that DHS has published
indicating which acceptable Form I-9 documents pertain to different categories of
individuals based on the individual’s attestation in Section 1 of Form I-9 as to the
individual’s citizenship status. Based on the DHS chart below an individual attesting
to a specific category in Section 1 should then present documentation from the corresponding
list to the employer for Section 2. To help prevent employers from accepting the documentation
from a different list, an electronic Form I-9 system may limit the employer to selecting
only documentation corresponding to an individual’s category.
guidelines on which documents on Form I-9 are issued to which categories of individuals,
see the chart below.
Social Security cards that are acceptable List C documents are only issued to:
National of the United States
of the Republic of Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, or the Republic
of Palau admitted under a Compact of Free Association
