What is the longest it takes to receive the work authorization card after biometrics ?

Asked about 2 years ago - Aurora, IL

My brother had his biometrics appointment before me and I already got everything including my SSN and he has not yet even received the work authorization card. He has been in initial review since November 25, 2012. I am just really concerned and want to know what can be the issue.
