  • First Name incomplete in EAD


    My first name is ABC DEF and my last name is XYZ. I do not have a middle name. I received my EAD card last week and the name is printed as follows:
    Last Name: XYZ
    Given Name : ABC D

    At the back of the card, it is printed as XYZ<<ABC<DEF . I am not sure if DEF has been mistakenly taken to be my middle name or if it is printed like that due to lack of space. The ISS office of my university are also not sure about it.
    I called up USCIS and they said that they could not verify it since the card has been sent to me already. They said that if I find a typographical error, I should send it for correction.

    Please advise on what to do.Has anyone faced a similar situation before ? Will this be a problem, I will be starting my new job in 2 weeks from now.

        Even I am facing a similar issue. My first name is one letter longer than what can accomodate on Ead, when I called them they said the database is restricted with regards to number of letters in name. I am eager to know if it creates problem for working.

            No problem with that, even mine is the same case. Dont worry about it. Because of our name is more than 15 characters they cant put the full first name. So if you can see the fullname on the back of the card, you are good to go..

              No worries. It will not create any problem unless there are no spelling mistakes in the printed name on card ( in you case ABC D XYZ)
