L-2 visa and EAD processing

Question details

I am in USA on L2 visa and I intend to start interviewing/ working immediately. For the EAD application, do I have to apply it before I interview or does the employer apply on my behalf once they make an offer? What are the processing times for EAD? I still haven't got my SSN but have scheduled the appointment for SSN. Should I apply for EAD after the SSN is approved or soon after SSN application?

ANSWER

You should apply (not the employer) for the EAD ASAP. Processing times are on USCIS web site.
