1 . The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has published a proposed rule in the [I]Federal Register[/I] that would make certain H-4 dependent spouses eligible to apply for employment authorization.
2 . The proposal rule is now subject to a 60-day public comment period started on May 12[SUP]th[/SUP] 2014 and ends on July 11[SUP]th[/SUP] 2014. When the comment period is over, DHS will review and consider any comments submitted before issuing a final rule.
3. [COLOR=#0000ff]Over 5,000+ Comments have been received so far[/COLOR]

4. It is estimated that this new rule could benefit almost 100,000 H-4 visa holders this year and around 30,000 annually in the coming years.
5. [COLOR=#0000ff]Time frame for implementation is unknown [/COLOR]which will be at least 60 days and likely several more months after the comment period before the new rule goes into effect.
6. If the rule is approved, the H-4 holder would receive an [COLOR=#0000ff]EAD valid for up to two years[/COLOR]. Processing of the I-765 application can take up to 120 days, so even after the new rule is approved and implemented, additional time will be required before an H-4 spouse is authorized to work in the United States.
7. With an EAD, the H-4 spouse will be able to obtain a Social Security Number and this group includes beneficiaries of PERM or I-140 petitions made 365 days prior, or those with approved PERM and I-140 petitions with no visa number available.
