So this just means that green cards will be processed slower.

 

How did you arrive at that conclusion? From what I understand, the EADs and green card processing queues are "separate." And a longer EAD validity means USCIS frees up manpower and resources for other tasks.

 

Receiving an EAD card is not a prerequisite for receiving a green card. Which is why some people on VJ report receiving the green cards before the EAD cards.

Does every i-485- i-765 filer eligible for this ?

Only under INA 245 (which is the most commonly used section of Adjustment of Status) https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-10-part-b-chapter-4 "USCIS approves employment authorization based on a pending INA 245 adjustment application for a validity period of 2 years."

We received a renewed EAD in March, which is valid till next March (2022). Does this mean it will be valid until March 2023 even though the card says 2022?

No. EADs were not automatically extended. If your I-485 is still pending in late-2021 then submit a new I-765 for renewal. Upon a timely submission, your current EAD will be automatically extended by 180 days: https://www.uscis.gov/i-9-central/form-i-9-resources/handbook-for-employers-m-274/handbook-for-employers-m-274/40-completing-section-2-of-form-i-9/44-automatic-extensions-of-employment-authorization-documents-eads-in-certain-circumstances When the EAD renewal application is approved, then the new EAD will have a validity period of 2 years.
