On June 26, 2009, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that the current Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 (Rev. 02/02/09) would continue to remain in effect beyond its planned expiration on June 30, 2009. Continued use of the current form is under review at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Employers should continue to use Form I-9 (Rev. 02/02/09) until OMB makes its decision. If OMB approves continued use of the current form, the revision and expiration dates will be updated. According to USCIS, employers will then be able to use the newly revised version of the form or the Rev. 02/02/09.

Form I-9 (Rev. 02/02/09) reflects changes made to employment verification documentation requirements outlined in the interim final rule, published Dec. 17, 2008 in the Federal Register. The final rule took effect on April 3, 2009. Most significantly, the final rule precludes the use of expired employment verification documentation and other documents no longer issued by USCIS.
