  • OPT EAD CARD wrong Valid and expiry dates

    Hi,

    I got my OPT card approved on 13, May, 2014, and I received my EAD card on 17 May 2014.

    I see some incorrect information on my card, following are the issues with the card. Other than below information everything else is printed correctly.

    1) Though my card is approved on 13, May, 2014, the valid from date is printed as 04/10/2014 almost one month back from the date it is approved (approved on 05/13/2014), why the valid from date is prior to approved date?
    2) End date printed as 02/21/2014, it is less than 10 months, for first time opt application it should be a minimum of 12 months, though my opt application is not extension, I got approved for 10 months only, and I already lost one month because of wrong valid from date. I took 8 months of CPT during my Masters.
    3) If I contact USCIS to correct it, how long it takes? Can I start working with the current card if USCIS agreed to issue new card? I have an offer which I dont want to miss because of this issue.

    Please suggest me the options I have in this case, I am planing to contact USCIS on Monday. Help and Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

                  1. 'From date' should be the date its approved. Please check the time taken for processing.
                  2. The end date should be after 12 months for post-completion OPT. For pre-completion OPT, its upto when your program I20 is valid. Has your program ended? By end date 02/21/2014 do you mean 02/12/2014? I guess your program i20 might be expiring on 2nd December 2013 in case of pre-completion OPT.
                  3. I would start working on the current EAD card and later get it fixed.
