Hi Friends,

 

My SSN card says "Valid for Work with only with DHS Authorization".

My EAD card is valid for next 7 months. (Received after my SSN card)

 

I have few questions with regards to the SSN card:

 

  • My SSN card says "Valid for Work with only with DHS Authorization" and I have EAD card (Validity good for next 7 months). Does that mean I can start employment on the basis of these two cards? or do I need to update my SSN card?

 

  • Do need to update or apply for a new SSN card once I get my Permanent Residency/Green Card?

 

  • If I do not receive Green Card before the expiry of my EAD card, do I need to apply for extension of EAD card? If yes, how and when to apply for the extension

 

Thank you :)

1. Yes they are what you need. You can’t lift the restriction on your SSCard until you have been granted your green card 

2. No 

3. yes  I think so ... search the USCIS website

Yes. Those 2 documents are necessary for the I-9.

https://www.uscis.gov/i-9-central/acceptable-documents/list-documents/form-i-9-acceptable-documents

Edit: More specifically, the EAD is an acceptable List A document. The SSN is needed for payroll (not the I-9).

 

Quote
  • Do need to update or apply for a new SSN card once I get my Permanent Residency/Green Card?

Need to? No.

But you can have a new SS card issued to get the text removed form the card, which can then be used with a valid state ID or DL for future I-9s (instead of using the green card).

  • If I do not receive Green Card before the expiry of my EAD card, do I need to apply for extension of EAD card? If yes, how and when to apply for the extension

Yes. You can apply for a renewal up to 6 months prior to expiration. A timely filed renewal grants an automatic 180 day extension.

Wow! That was perfect. Thank you so much. Doubts cleared.

Just one more question: If the need arise to renew my EAD, is there a fees for renewal of EAD card?

 

Thanks :)

No fee for the renewal. I believe it requires a copy of the I-45's NOA1 in lieu of payment (that's the case if filing the I-765 after the I-485, but I'm assuming it's the same for a renewal - check the I-765 instructions to confirm).

Renewed my wife's EAD earlier this year. Just need proof you filed the 485, and a copy of your current card. Good news is they process the renewal as a electronically processed petition. Didn't need new fingerprints or biometrics, and I submitted it like 5 months early thinking it would take a long time. Took less than 30 days to get the new card. Might be longer now, but it was quick. You will get a notice after you file like NOA 1 that gives you a case number and a notice that it will be processed electronically.


Here on a K1? Need married and a Certificate in hand within a few hours? I'm here to help. Come to Vegas and I'll marry you Vegas style!!   Visa Journey members are always FREE for my services. I know the costs involved in this whole game of immigration, and if I can save you some money I will!

Thank you so much for the information. May I ask if you could provide any weblink on how to apply for renewal online? With this covid thing I think its better to apply little early as the USCIS must be having huge backlog now and who know how long this whole issue will last. I hope things get to normal soon.

 

Thanks :)

You still have to file it thru the mail, then they will make it electronic when they get it. You will get a weird case number that starts with EOD I think, but you still have to mail it in, you can't file online.

I received my EAD some 4 months back. According to the below link on USCIS website, the USCIS is still processing the EADs. I understand that those who have applied for EAD along with AOS but have not completed the biometrics yet, for them the USCIS will use the biometrics collected before and process the EAD application.

 

Check the link.
