Employment Authorization Card

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi! I received my Employment Authorization card last week. Do I need to go back to SSA to remove the "valid for work with DHS authorization" under my SSN? After then, I am eligible to work already. Or do I have to do some more paperworks to file?

Also, it says at the bottom of the card "serves as I-512 Advance Parole". Does it mean my Advance Parole application has been approved? Also, will this suffice as proof so I can leave the country and return to the US without issues?

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Congratulations! You can't remove the "valid for work with DHS authorization" until you receive your green card.

Your card is the new EAD/AP combo. It serves as a work permit and advance parole.

You are eligible to work now. You need the EAD and your SS card to work. You can get the notation on your SS card removed once you get your green card. Yes, the card also works as your AP, and you use it to re-enter the US if you leave.

Just to correct you Baron. The EAD IS the work authorisation. The OP cannot remove the "DHS authorisation required" until they get their GC and they currently only have their EAD.
