Will PIO be eligible for Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana account?

Only if the daughter of PIO/OCI holder is born and lives in India

Can I open a Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana account for my PIO daughter who is 9 yrs old and was born in the US?

Since your daughter was not born in India, she will not be eligible for Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana scheme. Please note that an NRI/ PIO/ OCI can't open Sukanya Samriddhi account for their daughters, unless the daughter is born in India and lives in India.
