We got a letter today saying that my wife's AP has been approved and the EAD will be mailed separately. How long does it take to get combo card after this?

She has to wait for the card before working right? Thanks so much in advance!!!

If your timeline is correct and you filled for the combo card that's what you will get. 

I got the same info and got the combo card.

The NOA comes separately.

My wife's physical card showed up 6 days after the notice. Technically you can't start working until you have the actual card, but the employer my wife was going to be working at allowed her to start orientation with just the letter. The letter came on Saturday, she called the boss, and they had her start orientation on Monday, the physical card showed up on Thursday, and she took it in on Friday and did all the payroll forms then. Since it was going to be 2 weeks from start date to payroll they said no issue, as I don't think orientation was paid anyway.

Thanks! So we were supposed to "file" for a card? Or everyone that files for EAD/AP gets a combo card?

If you filed EAD AP you should get a combo card if you filed both forms at the same time. I have heard of people getting 2 separate cards when they filed the AP separate from the EAD.

Ok. We filed at the same time. Would it be safe to assume she gets the card by Friday give or take a couple days?

Hopefully, my wife got the letter on a Saturday, and the card on Thursday via priority mail USPS. If you log into your online account, they give you the tracking number for the card.

On May 9, 2019, the Post Office delivered your new card for Receipt Number MSC1990xxxxxxx, to the address that you gave us. The tracking number assigned is 92055901537084272xxxxx. You can use your tracking number at www.USPS.com in the Quick Tools Tracking section. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

 

from my USCIS account. Numbers x out for my protection... LOL.

It says “We ordered your new card on 9/12/19” but I don’t see the tracking information.

The tracking info is two statuses away from the status you have.

FWIW, my wife got the letters on Saturday; card should have been with them, but was delayed somewhere along the line and should be here today.
