If you are not a U.S. citizen or green card holder (permanent resident) and you would like to work in the U.S., you may need to apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). The EAD is proof that you are allowed to work in the U.S. for the time the card is valid. In most cases, an EAD Card is valid for one year.

If your Employment Authorization Document (EAD) has expired and you are still eligible for a work authorization, then you may renew your EAD. You may renew your EAD within four months (120 days) of the expiration date. If your EAD will expire in more than four months (120 days), it is too soon to renew.

If your previously issued Employment Authorization Document (EAD) has mistakes, such as a misspelled name, or you have had a name-change since the issuance of your EAD, then you can apply to receive a replacement with the correct information. If approved for a replacement, your new EAD Card will contain the same dates and category as your previous EAD.
