It takes about 6 months. But, if you need proof of your status, you can take your passport to CIS for an InfoPass appointment.

You can expect to wait 6 months or more for the new resident card to be issued. You can schedule an INFOPASS appointment with the USCIS office nearest you ( San Antonio) and obtain an I-551 stamp in your current passport in case you need to provide verification of your resident status to a prospective employer or at a port of entry.
We have recently had an I-90 approved in just over 2 months, but generally the waiting period is closer to six months. If you have lost your card, you may be able to make an Infopass appointment at USCIS.gov at your local field office to get a stamp in your passport.
