266 After March 20, 1996, what will happen if I present an old Form I-151Green Card when I try to reenter the United States after traveling abroad,or when I obtain a new job, or when I apply for entitlement benefits?

Reentry into the United States from abroad: To the extent possible, apply
for your new card before you travel and bring with you evidence of your
application for either the new card or naturalization. However, a legal
permanent resident with an old I-151 who applies for admission to the
United States after traveling abroad may experience a delay in admission
due to additional procedures.

Obtaining employment: If you are considering changing jobs, again, we urge
you to apply for your new card or naturalization and bring with you
evidence of your application for either the new card or naturalization.
While employers will not accept the old I-151 , when they verify employment
eligibility for new hires, you may use other documents listed on the Form
I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification Form) to fulfill this need.

Applying for entitlement benefits: Your status as a legal permanent
resident has not changed. Therefore, your eligibility for entitlement
benefits will not change. However, to avoid any possible inconvenience or
delay in applying for entitlement benefits, we urge you to apply for your
new card or naturalization and bring with you evidence of your application
for either the new card or naturalization.
