What is a receipt as it relates to I-9?
- A receipt is a copy of a document presented to verify identity and employment eligibility.
- A receipt may only be accepted for the replacement of a lost, stolen, or damaged document.
- The validity period for a receipt is 90 days from the hire date.
- At the end of the receipt validity period, the actual document for which the receipt was issued must be presented.
How does a Manager indicate a receipt of a document?
- Managers indicate that a document is a receipt when originally completing Section 2 of the I-9.
- In this case, Managers click the "This document is a receipt" checkbox within Step 3 of Section 2.
- Per USCIS, when a receipt is presented for a list B or C document, EV cases should not be submitted until the actual document is received and the I-9 is completed in reverification.
- When the employee provides the actual document for which the receipt was presented, the employer must update the employee’s Form I-9 and then create a case in E-Verify for the employee
