LPRs May Present Receipt Notice that Extends PRC for an Additional 24 Months

Lawful permanent residents who have applied for naturalization may receive a Form I-797, Notice of Action, receipt notice showing that they filed an N-400, Application for Naturalization. This receipt notice extends their current Permanent Resident Card (PRC) for 24 months from the "Card Expires" date on the card. New employees may present this receipt notice in combination with their expired PRC as a List A document when completing Form I-9. 

To complete Form I-9 for this employee, employers should enter the information from the employee's PRC in Section 2 as they normally would, then enter a date in the Expiration Date field that is 24 months from the "Card Expires" date shown on the card. Note that employers must not reverify current employees who are lawful permanent residents that may receive this receipt notice. 

For more information, refer to the M-274 Handbook for Employers in Section 6.1 Lawful Permanent Residents.
