An asylum applicant is entitled to work authorization only after it has taken USCIS 180 days (through no fault of the applicant) to adjudicate the application. The application for work authorization can be filed after 150 days, but it will not be approved until 180 days have elapsed.

THIS ANSWER IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY, DOES NOT CONSTITUTE LEGAL ADVICE, AND DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP.
