My current EAD card is about to expire in a few weeks. I applied to renew my EAD card back in August, but my new card hasn't arrived yet. I applied as a category C9, so I believe I am allowed a 180 day extension. However, I am having trouble explaining this to Human Resources where I work. I am worried that they don't understand how this extension works and that they won't allow me to work there after my card expires. Does anybody else have any experience with this? How did you get your employers to understand you are allowed an extension?


I showed them the receipt I received after I sent away for my first EAD, which explains the 180 day extension for C9's and also the Notice of Action I received after I applied to renew my card which shows that they received it back in August. Not sure if there is anything else I can show them to help my case?


Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I showed this link to my employer with my card! Mine expired on 10/15/18 and I'm still waiting on a new one. I actually didn't initially see that you could apply for your renewal far earlier than I did. I think I had read an older thread that said within 90 days. I applied in August as well. It took three months to the day to get my first card. It sucks that it's almost four months for a renewal and I've heard nothing. Trying not to feel nervous about travel plans in the new year!
