Lying about being a US citizen? Who has a copy of my i-9?

Hi. I would like to become a US citizen but I know that one bar to that is claiming you were a US citizen when you were not. I do not believe I've ever done that, but I recently remembered I was employed many years ago (I WAS authorized to work at the time) and I filled out an i-9 form. The employer helped me fill it out and I was never given a copy for my records, and it's honestly a blur what I put in the form. There's a question in it about whether you're a citizen and I don't believe I would have claimed to be one knowingly, but I was nervous and mostly just going along with what the manager was instructing me to do, checking boxes I was told to. I remember they asked me for my passport and SSN, and as stated, I was authorized to work, so I see no reason why they would tell me to answer the citizenship question wrong, but it's just something in the back of my mind I'd like to resolve before I apply for naturalization.

Who has a copy of my i-9 form and how would I get one? I don't think they're still in business, so I can't contact the employer to see if they have a copy.

Also, is this something that would have come up in an adjustment of status interview? Because I did successfully adjust status after this employment and I did disclose it to USCIS. If they would have looked into it then, maybe I'm good?

Thank you for any insight and answers.

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
