Beware: New Form I-9 Has Problem with Social Security Field


Beware: New Form I-9 Has Problem with Social Security Field

                                   

            The USCIS, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, reminds employers to address the Form I-9 Glitch in the new downloaded I-9. Employers that downloaded the Form I-9 from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website between November 14 and November 17, 2016, are being asked to make sure that employees' Social Security numbers appear correctly.

            The glitch is in the social security number field in the forms downloaded on those dates. The social security number will sometimes transpose the entries. For example a SSN of 123-45-6789 could change when the form is saved to 123-34-6789 according to an example given by the Jackson-Lewis law firm release.

            The USCIS recommends that employers do the following:

 

∙                                   Check all Forms I-9 issued with the new form for the employee’s correct social security number

∙                                   If a form is found with an incorrect SSN, have the employee draw a line through the incorrect number in Section 1, then enter the correct number and initial and date the change.

∙                                   Make a note indicating why the change was made citing the USCIS notice dated April 6, 2017, at www.uscis.gov/i-9-central/whats-new.
