Automatic Employment Authorization Document (EAD) Extension

Tags : 

Starting Jan. 17, 2017, USCIS is automatically extending certain expiring EADs for up to 180 days for applicants who:

  • Properly filed for a renewal EAD before their current  EAD expired, and
  • Are otherwise eligible for a renewal, which means that:
    • Your EAD renewal is under a category that is eligible for an automatic 180-day extension (see the list of categories below); and
    • The Category on your current EAD matches the “Class Requested” listed on this Notice of Action.  (Note:  If you are a TPS beneficiary or pending applicant, your EAD and this Notice must contain either the A12 or C19 category, but the categories do not need to match each other).

We are doing so to help prevent gaps in employment authorization and documentation. This extension applies to Form I-765 renewal applications that are still pending on January 17, 2017, and to Form I-765 renewal applications filed on or after Jan. 17, 2017.

Helpful Tips

Everybody needs a will: A will is a powerful tool. It allows an individual to state how they want their assets distributed upon their death and to whom they should go to. Dying without a will, also known as "dying intestate" does not allow you the right to choose who inherits your estate, but rather gives the State the power to decide.
