Huntington, WV asked in Immigration Law for Ohio

Q: I9 question

I became a citizen 3 days ago and have to wait at least 10 days to update my SSN. I have to fill out an I9 for a new job. Should I select permanent resident or citizen? My permanent resident card was still valid but I had to surrender it upon taking the oath. Thank you.

A: If you legally became U.S. Citizen after an oath ceremony you have to state USC and cannot write LPR, Social Security Number notwithstanding.

A: You state that you became a USC. If by that statement you mean that you have gone through a ceremony and received your Certificate of Naturalization than you are a USC and the answer is you are a USC.

Word of caution: If you have not gone through a ceremony and received a NATZ certificate DO NOT claim to be a USC until you have done so.
