    OPT EAD Application Late submission. What will be the start date?

    Hi,

    Currently, I am on F1 Visa. I graduated on March 3/21/2019. However, I submitted my OPT application on 4/5/2019. 60 Day Window from my Graduation ends on 5/20/2019.

    So In case, USCIS approves my application on 7/20/2019.

    1) Will my EAD start date be 7/20/2019 or 5/20/2019?

    2) Also in case, it's 7/20/2019, when does my unemployment clock start?

    I am little worried. Any kind of suggestion is appreciated.

    It’s completely depends on what date you put in your application for ex: you graduated 5/20 if you put start date 7/20 then your official start 7/20/2019 to 7/19/2020 if you receive your card before start date also it’s valid from 7/20/2019 to 7/19/2020 if you receive your card after start date then when ever you will get card that date to 7/19/2020
    And
    Come to your unemployment: it’s starts from when ever you will get card that date to 90 days so don’t worries your in good situation

    1) It won’t be both of these dates unless if you get approval during those dates, you will get start date whenever they approves your application, Usually USCIS takes 45-90 days of time to process any application.
    2) After receives your EAD if you didn’t join any company then your unemployment period starts from there.
    Ping me if you have more questions.
