Automatic Employment Authorization Document (EAD) Extension

Between May 4, 2022, and June 2, 2022, some Forms I-797C, Notice of Action, issued to communicate receipt of Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, included outdated language relating to a 180-day automatic extension for certain categories of renewal applicants, instead of language relating to the current 540-day automatic extension provided by the temporary final rule effective May 4, 2022 (Temporary Increase of the Automatic Extension Period of Employment Authorization and Documentation for Certain Renewal Applicant (87 FR 26614)). Corrected notices were printed for affected applications. Unfortunately, the corrected notices did not include Notice Date, Received Date, or Date of Birth. Affected applicants should expect to receive an updated receipt by the third week of July.
