      Replacing an EAD
      A replacement EAD replaces a lost, stolen, or mutilated EAD. In addition, an EAD may be replaced without fee for USCIS error when it was issued with incorrect information, such as a misspelled name. You must file Form I-765 to replace an EAD.

      USCIS - Employment Authorization Document
      www.uscis.gov
      U.S. employers must check to make sure all employees, regardless of citizenship or national origin, are allowed to work in the United States. If you are not a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident, you may fall into one of three categories of persons who are eligible for employment authorization.

        Is a receipt showing that the employee has filed for a new employment authorization document acceptable as evidence of continuing eligibility for employment?

        The employer may not accept a receipt showing that the employee has filed for an extension or an initial document. Receipts for applications for employment authorization can only be accepted as evidence of continuing eligibility to be employed in cases where the original document has been lost, stolen, or mutilated. In these cases, the previous document must still have been otherwise valid (still would have been within the validity period previously granted if not lost, stolen, etc.) and the employee must provide the valid replacement document
        within 90 days.

          Replacement EAD

          An application for a replacement EAD is filed if a card has been lost, stolen, or mutilated, or when the previously issued card contains erroneous information, such as a misspelled name or name change. If an application for a replacement EAD is approved, the replacement EAD will have the same dates and category as the EAD that was lost, stolen, etc.

          Persons applying for replacement documents can present the receipt for the I-765 as evidence of employment eligibility but must produce a valid card within 90 days of showing the receipt.
