You don't need too.

The green card authorizes you to work.

Applying for EAD with the green card usually allows you to work BEFORE you get the green card IF its approved before hand.

EAD is not valid after you get the green card because the green card IS the main piece that allows you to work and travel.

So if you don't intend to work right away you don't need an EAD. After you get the green card you can work or not work.

You apply for EAD to be able to work while your AOS is pending. Once you get your green card you can work.

But yes, if for some reason you still need to apply for EAD you can do it later. Just follow the filing instructions that come with the form.
