Wrong date on "Resident Since" on green card

Hi everyone! I just received a letter from USCIS informing me that I have to file Form I-751 (Petition to remove conditions on residence) within 90 days prior to the second anniversary of the date I was granted CPR status. I found it a little strange, because I only received my green card in January 2014. So I checked my green card, and realized that the date on "Resident Since" states January 2013.

I entered the US in May 2013, applied for adjustment of status in July 2013, received notification that my adjustment of status was approved in January 2014.

Is there a possibility that the information printed on my green card is incorrect? I never paid attention to the date when I received the card because I was just excited to get it, and it never occurred to me that there could possibly be a mistake on it.

It seems a little too soon to have to file Form I-751, since I only got my green card in January this year. Should I contact USCIS to check with them? Will I be penalized for not realizing this error earlier and informing them sooner?

Thanks for the help!

Yes, you need to have your green card replaced. You should file an I-90 and return your misprinted green card to USCIS; use the option that your green card contains an error and there will be no fee for the replacement. Enclose a copy of the approval notice for your I-485 to show the correct date that should be printed for the "Resident since" date.

Hey Hypnos! Thanks for your answer. Would you know how long it takes for the card to be replaced? I'm traveling out of the US on 27 Nov, and will be back on 10 Dec. Would it be better to file the I-90 now or after I return to the US?

It can be six months to a year until they send you the correct green card. I would urge you to do it as soon as possible, to CYA. You would need to return the misprinted green card to USCIS with the I-90.

As soon as you have the receipt NOA for your I-90 (after a couple of weeks from filing, or thereabouts) you can then make an Infopass appointment at your local office and receive an I-551 stamp in your passport that should be good for a year (sometimes they only give you six months but you can get another). This stamp would be as effective as a green card, and can be used for international travel and employment purposes.

You should take your I-485 approval notice and your I-90 receipt notice to this Infopass appointment, together with your valid foreign passport.
