Default Actual EAD card

Hi,

Although my EAD has been approved long back, I haven't actually received the actual EAD card in hand because of an address related glitch. It is said they will re-send, but the delay is unbelievable. I have the A# from other correspondences.

Under the circumstances, can I apply for a AC21.

Thanks,

Soumya

If your new employer is processing a H1 then you do not need EAD to initiate AC 21.

If the new employer is not processing a H1 then you would need to show your new employer the EAD inorder to start working for them. You say that you have the A# but do you also know the start and end date for the EAD? Your new employer needs to have all these to fill the I-9 form. YOU MAY BE ABLE TO BUY UPTO 90 DAYS TO SHOW THE EAD. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE I-9 FORM. I HAVE ATTACHED A PORTION OF IT FOR YOUR REFERENCE.

READ THE I-9, EMPLOYMENT ELIGIBILITY VERIFICATION.

Employers must complete Section 2 by examining evidence of identity and employment eligibility within three (3) business days of the date employment begins. If employees are authorized to work, but are unable to present the required document(s) within three business days, they must present a receipt for the application of the document(s) within three business days and the actual document(s) within ninety (90) days.

Default EAD approved but no EAD card

Thanks for the reply.

No, my new would be employer will not be doing H1 transfer for me. They will take the EAD route. Yes, I know the start and end date of EAD as that is printed in the approval letter.

So, I guess, although I don't have the plastic card in hand, I can start processing AC21 on the basis of EAD approval notice and A#, that gives me 90 more days.

I will read I 9 more carefully with time. Also started upgrading profile.
