Hi, sweety. Nice to hear from you again.

Anyway, if you have received NPIW letter, don't count your local office is processing yours. My local office was in Kendall for biometric but I just found out over NPIW thread that it is not true. I received RFE on May 22, 2015 because my medical was expired due long wait and it came from local USCIS in Fairfax, Virginia. My case was never sit in Kendall. They just took my biometric there because it is the closest USCIS local office from my area.

Please read this thread, quite long but it worth reading!

Hey girl, how are you?

Well, i haven't even gotten an rfe for them requiring a new medical, but i guess i should wait for it. Is it valid a year or? If so, it has definitely expired!!

How much was your medical here if i may ask?

The npiw letter i got

got was from nbc though, but they said that they are not the office i should be looking for and i have always assumed that it ws Miami, since when i call they ask what my local office is.

I don't know, just so tired of waiting, and i don't look forward to have to pay again for both a medical and a new ead ?

I am doing fine, thank you, :content: .

They just approved my I-485 and received the welcome letter yesterday after waiting one year and 2 weeks from filing date. The total amount of my medical was $395. Please take a look on my signature. I have it breakdown for the price.

Yes, everyone received NPIW from NBC even my welcome letter though my medical was sent to Fairfax, Virginia. I thought mine was in Kendall too but after someone told me about the thread I was speechless. You should started calling them after 6 months passed from the date that stated on your NPIW.

Oh, you don't have to pay your EAD. All you need is a copy of your NOA-1 and included in your EAD package. Keep me posted!

No, you don't have to pay your renewal EAD. Just included a copy of your NOA-1 for I-485. The clinic does not accepted medical insurance. But you can call your insurance if they can reimbursed you after you done with it. Keep in mind, the RFE is not only about medical. Many people got RFEs for different things such as birth certificate, marriage certificate, affidavit of support, etc.

I swore won't renew my EAD after these people being rude to my husband at USCIS local office in Kendall. Because if I wanted to renew again it means long drive from Key West to Kendall, Miami, for biometric appointment to get EAD done (8 hours of total time to drive back and forth). I won't my husband suffered again.

I know, but if i get an rfe, it will probably be a medical, already recieved one in the beginning, and havent had a status update in 8 months now, except for the npiw letter, but it doesnt update my status anyway, lol.

Well, i guess i will just have to.be patient til august 18th, then i will have to call again, since then it has been 6 months since i recieved the letter! Oh i hear you, so you never renewed it?

Yes, I don't renew it and expires on August 28, 2015. It does not matter now, :D.

echo: renewal on EAD is free.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

I recieved an rfe for a tax return that they said we didnt send them, which we are almost sure we did, but we sent it again. Well, i did call them several times, and they confirm the same status that is shown on case status . I know sometimes or very often they dont update, but i think mine is correct though. My ead expires in december this year, so i hope it wont take longer than september. We will see, congrats on your approval btw , lol, forgot to say that ;)

Thank you, girl! :dancing:

That's happened to many applicants, probably they have lost it somewhere. You are lucky the status updates regularly, not mine definitely. :D.

Keep me posted.
