IEAD in Chicago

Today, I went to the local USCIS office at 10 w jackson blvd, and got the IEAD. This office is just outside the Jackson Blue Line Subway station. They opened the doors at 6AM. When they opened the doors, there were around 50 people in the line.

They were asking for EAD, 140 reciepts, IL driving license/state ID or some postal mail to prove that you are IL resident.

Got the IEAD for 3 months. Out by 9AM.

EAD Renewal

My wife's EAD expired last month and she stopped working till today. She applied renewal in December, 2003. We waited till 90 days is complete and went to local USCIS office on 3/22/2003. It is a walk in. The lady in reception verified the I-765 receipt. After making sure that 90 days have lapsed. She asked us to fill some paper work and wait in the adjoining hall. The office called her and collected her Driver's License and expired EAD. After verification he returned Driver's License and asked her to get her picture taken in the next room.

MY EAD renewal

MY EAD renewal was applied for and 6 months had passed and after several months worth of unanswered phone calls, I got someone at the switchboard who transferred me to the EAD department.
I was informed that my application was lost and a new one would need to be submitted or no new EAD.
After travelling all morning to Chicago and a fair bit of trying to
convince the door guy, i got in and the whole process took about 3 hours. They worked quickly once I showed up on thier doorstep.
