Documents That Establish Both Identity and Employment Authorization
A U.S. passport, a permanent resident card, an alien registration form, a foreign passport containing a temporary I-551 stamp and an employment authorization document containing a photo are examples of documents establishing both identity and employment authorization.
Documents that Establish Identity
Documents which establish someone's identity include: driver's license or government issued photo identification card, school photo identification card, voter's registration card; U.S. military card or draft record, a military dependent's identification card, a U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Card, Native American tribal documentation and a driver's license issued by Canada.
Documents establishing employment authorization
An employee must present one of the following documents: Social Security account number card; Certification of Birth Abroad issued by the Department of State, a certification of report of birth from the Department of State, an original or certified copy of a birth certificate, a Native American tribal document, a U.S. Citizen ID Card, or an employment authorization document issued by the Department of Homeland Security. These documents establish employment authorization. Only one of the above is needed.
