All new employees (including re-hired employees) must complete an I-9 Form (PDF) to verify identity and employment eligibility.
If you have been recently hired or rehired and have been instructed to complete an I-9 form you are at the right place.

Checklist before employee visits an I-9 Center
To help ensure your new employee is prepared for the I-9 process, please use the checklist below before sending them to an I-9 Center. Not completing these steps may result in the inability to complete the I-9 process.
Checklist for eRecruit Hires: (Regular Staff, Faculty, Instructional, Supplemental, Primary Staff, Graduate Students, Non-Student Temporary)
- Did you Add a Contact Note (PDF) in eRecruit with the employee’s first day of employment?
Checklist for Student Temporary Hires:
- Did the department complete the Student Temporary Employment Process?
Remote I-9 Process Overview (PDF)
To ensure that the I-9 service is completed on time, it is recommended you request remote I-9 service immediately following the employee accepting the offer. Remote I-9 processing can take up to two weeks or longer, depending upon the employee’s location and the ability to locate an agent willing to complete an I-9 on behalf of U-M.
- Hiring Departments must submit the request on behalf of the employee. Employees should not submit a request themselves and these cannot be processed.
- Federal law requires that an in-person meeting occur in order to complete an I-9. This meeting is required for all I-9’s including those for remote employees. The remote I-9 process does NOT remove the federal requirement of meeting in-person to complete the I-9.
- Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are potential delays in completing the remote I-9 process and locating an agent to assist in the process.
- The Remote I-9 process is only available in situations where an employee is not near a University of Michigan campus or facility. The employee must be working outside of driving distance (generally one hour) from one of the University of Michigan campuses.
If you are planning a special departmental orientation for new hires, and would like to include the opportunity for them to complete the I-9 process at the event, we can help! SSC staff will attend your event and complete the I-9 process on site. Request I-9 Special Event Service (eForm)
Special Event Services must include at least 15 attendees and be held during regular business hours (Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.). To help ensure all new employees are eligible to complete their I-9 forms, please refer to this readiness checklist:
- Did the employee complete and pass a background check?
- Did the employee accept a final job offer?
- Is the employee aware of required documentation to bring with them?
- Does the event date fall between the job offer acceptance date and the employee’s first day at work?
