My EAD was lost and I was told to apply for a replacement card. I need to submit the entire package again to USCIS. I wanted to know if
1.) I need to get the new I20 from the university as well?
2.) The start date on my previous EAD was 27 June 2018 but my EAD was somehow lost by USPS. So can I change my start date for the new replacement card?
3.) Is there any interim EAD card which I can get early so that I can start working with that until I get the actual EAD card?
4.) Is there a way to expedite the entire process so that I can receive my EAD early since it was already approved and i have the approval notice?
5.) Can I stop my unemployment days which have started from 27 June 2018.
Really appreciate any kind of help. Thanks!
Well, if your employment was authorized you may work until you get the new card. The card is just a technicality. You do not specify yourself the dates of authorization. The application asks you when was the last EAD applied and issued for and those are the dates your provide based on the approval notice. However, since this is a "replacement" card not a renewal, they will issue you the same card as before. You do not need to expedite because your EAD has already been authorized.
