Mailed out my I-751 packet 2 weeks ago and 2 days ago received the extension letter from USCIS.

It will extend the current green card by 18 months. Is there anything I to do with this extension letter?

Is there any required action for now?

We received the same extension letter. It will act as GC validation until you receive a new card. We met with USCIS a couple of weeks ago because we're leaving the country and were a little concerned with using a letter to get back into the U.S. They do not stamp your foreign passport (or anything) until after the letter expires. However, they said, we should receive a new GC before the letter expires - or she becomes a U.S. citizen. They said to carry the GC and the letter when entering the country or doing anything that requires a GC. We made several copies and even mailed one to her parents in Vietnam - just in case.

No, there is nothing you need to do with the letter right now. It wil! Act as the GC extension.

You will need the "original" extension letter with your expired green card to re-enter the USA.

I would suggest making several copies of it. Consider placing the original in a plastic page saver sleeve to prevent it from being torn or soiled.

 

One time when we doing the extension letter game, my wife and I took a couples of days and traveled up to Vancouver, BC., doing tourist stuff. To get to and fro across the border, we each took our passports, she took her expired conditional GC,  the page-saver protected extension letter and a copy of our marriage license, and our WA State Driver's Licenses. Maybe it was more than was necessary, but we certainly had no problem going to Canada, or re-entering the US.

 

YMMV.
