DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AB69 Publication ID: Fall 2008 
Title: Documents and Receipts Acceptable for Employment Eligibility Verification 
Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security is amending its regulations listing the identity and employment authorization documents and receipts that individuals may present to their employers for completion of Form I-9,“Employment Eligibility Verification.” This rule changes the list of documents by: requiring that acceptable documents be unexpired, and eliminating several identity (List B) and employment authorization (List C) documents. A copy of the amended Form I-9 reflecting these changes will be published as an attachment to this rule. The affect of this rule is to improve the integrity of the employment eligibility verification process by simplifying the list of acceptable documents for ease of use by employers, ensuring that the list contains secure and fraud-resistant documents, and adding safeguards to the verification process.
