Can I get employed if I only have an unrestricted SSN & a foreign passport with form I-94 attached?The passport is expired.

Asked over 1 year ago - Larkspur, CA

I'm about to get a job but I only have my SSN and foreign expired passport with form I-94.
Im hoping that I can use this documents to get hired, but I wanna know if it's legally possible?
I had an EAD but it's expired as well, please let me know thank you.

Additional information

I entered the US as an asylee and I read on the USCIS website that asylees are eligible to work without a EAD. I'm also able to adjust my status to been a resident but I haven't been able to because of financial problems.

    Answered . I am assuming that you are out of status since you have an expired EAD and passport. If that is the case you cannot work legally, you need a valid EAD.

    Answered . Given the limited facts, it will be illegal for you to work without a valid EAD regardless of your unrestricted SS.
