U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 currently on the USCIS Web site will continue to be valid for use beyond the June 30, 2009 expiration date that appears on the form. USCIS has requested an extension of that form's validity from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

After OMB approval, employers can use either the Form I-9 with the new revision date, or continue to use the current Form I-9 with the 02/02/09 revision date at the bottom of the form.
