You have to bring all of your passports including expired one.

Technically you don't need to renew your passport, but some Interview Officer may question what happened after the date your passport expired.

So for safety net, I would recommend to renew your passport, or get new one ASAP.

i called the CSR and he said you dont have to renew the passport unless you are traveling. he said you should take other forms of ID with you to show who you are.

Hi ShallowShrek and Everyone,

I was wondering the same thing too, as my passport will expire soon in the next few months, and by the time I get to naturalization (hopefully next year), I'll have an expired passport then as it's too much of a hassle and expense to renew it, and I won't be travelling much before citizenship. So it's good and a relief to know, that I don't need to renew it before my interview, and that they accept other IDs and info during the interview. Though I'll include a copy of it in my application, and will bring the expired one, just in case...
