  Frequently Asked Questions  
Which name should be recorded on the Form I-9, the name on the applicant’s social security card or the name as it appears on the corresponding work authorization document, such as the alien registration card?

When an immigration audit is conducted, investigators from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE,” the new enforcement agency of the Department of Homeland Security) will request a payroll roster and will expect to see I-9s that correspond alphabetically with that roster. As the social security card is the control document for payroll, it is advisable to maintain I-9s accordingly. However, if one’s immigration status is that of a permanent resident, and that I-551 card bears a different name, perhaps a hyphenated name or a former maiden name, it is advisable to annotate the I-9 at the top to also reflect that name. Otherwise, when ICE checks the immigration database under the I-551 alien registration number, the names will not match.
