Form I-9 Compliance LLC has updated its web application in response to the USCIS guidance on how to document an expired driver’s license or state ID on the Form I-9 due to a COVID-19 extension. If an employee’s state ID or driver’s license expired on or after March 1, 2020, and the document expiration date has been extended by their state due to COVID-19, then it is acceptable as a List B document for Form I-9.
- Enter the document’s expiration date in Section 2, then enter “COVID-19 EXT” in the Additional Information field. (See example here.)
- Employers may also attach a copy of the state motor vehicle department’s webpage or other notice indicating that their documents have been extended.
- The Section 2 expiration date should be the actual expiration date printed on the employee’s document and not an auto-extension date.
Employers can confirm that their state has auto-extended the expiration date of state IDs and driver’s licenses by checking the state Motor Vehicle Administration or Department of Motor Vehicle’s website.
