Q&A: If a Social Security card contains the employee's address, is it valid for I-9 purposes?
Make sure you're looking at the actual Social Security card, not a "stub."
I’ve been in HR for several years, and while completing the I-9 process, an employee gave me a Social Security card that looks different from any I’ve ever seen before. The employee swears that it is legitimate, and the card says it was issued by the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. However, it has the employee’s address on it (in addition to his name and SSN). Is this card the real thing?
