Q&A: If a worker shows a Social Security card with an expiration date, is it valid for I-9 purposes?
What looks to be an expiration date may not be.
I work as a manager in a restaurant chain, and I am in charge of completing I-9s for new hires. I recently received a Social Security card from an employee that has what looks like an expiration date on the front, and the card appears to be expired. I know that I can only accept unexpired documents for I-9s, but the employee says that he just got the card and says that the date is not an expiration date. Can I accept the card for the employee’s I-9?
