How long does it take to process I-765 and EAD renewal?

Hello everyone. I don't have much time before my EAD expires so I am wondering how long does USCIS need to process my I-765 application for EAD renewal? It is processed at National Benefits Center.

If I remember correctly when I was applying for the first time it was something like this. I sent paperwork in late September, received and responded to RFE, had my biometrics appointment at early November and received my EAD in mid December. So it was two and a half months all together for them to process my application, send me RFE, process my RFE response and to send me EAD.

What can I expect in case of EAD renewal. I hope it can be faster. Is it possible for them to process it in one month?

Thank you.

You were supposed to apply for a renewal before it was close to expiring, they let you apply for renewal 120 days before the expiration date. If the EAD expires, I don't think you are allowed to work until you receive the new one. You may be able to request an expedite if you are working and will experience financial hardship if you lose it. I believe the renewal takes about the same time, it could be 2 to 3 months for normal processing.

I just double checked, it's taking 3 months at the NBC, but a lot of times it's issued in less. Like I said, you may be able to request an expedite. Here is some info on expedite requests:
