Can I work if my EAD renewal is in process?

You will not be eligible to work when an EAD application is pending with USCIS.

Do I need an employment authorization card?

If you are lawful permanent resident (green card holder) or a conditional resident, you do NOT require EAD to work in the US.

Can I get a Social Security number with an employment authorization card?

If USCIS approves your application, you will receive two documents by mail:

1. Employment Authorization Document (EAD), also known as the “I-766 card” or “work permit”, and

2. SSN card.

When I can I get a work permit, if i apply for asylum?

Once 150 days have passed and you have applied, the government has 30 days to give you (or deny) your EAD. If you was granted asylum status, you not only gain the right to work in the U.S., but don’t need to apply for an EAD with which to do so.

      All through our immigration process, which took about 5 years, Julia Greenberg demonstrated professionalism, exemplary work ethics and deep knowledge of immigration law. She was always available and provided thought through answers to our … More multiple questions. In my opinion, what really distinguishes Julia from other immigration lawyers we have worked with is that she is willing to go the extra mile for her clients. The fact that the prosecutor in our case complimented Julia for her outstanding effort serves as the best proof of her professionalism.
