Renew work authorization based on pending asylum case?

Asked 4 months ago - San Diego, CA

I have pending asylum case for more than one year and my initial work authorization will expire in 3 months.
My questions:
when should I send the new application to renew my card?
is there a fee for renew card? or it's free same as the initial one?
