Temporary automatic extension for some employment authorizations

May 3, 2022 “U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a Temporary Final Rule (TFR) that increases the automatic extension period for employment authorization and Employment Authorization Documents (EADs), available to certain EAD renewal applicants, to up to 540 days.” This means those whose EADs are under this list, automatically have a 540 day extension from the expiration date on the card. That includes those who have EADs under a pending application to adjust status to that of a permanent resident.
