USCIS Announces 120-day Window to Renew EAD

USCIS has updated information on its website to inform customers that an I-765 Application for Employment Authorization to extend an EAD (employment authorization document) may not be filed earlier than 120 days before the original EAD expires. Any I-765 application for an extension EAD received on or after January 29, 2008, that was filed more than 120 days from the date of expiration, will be denied as filed too early. An application for replacement of an EAD that was lost, stolen, or mutilated, or that contains incorrect information may be filed at any time.
