Using the New EAD Eligibility Calculator
Earlier this month, USCIS announced that certain applicants filing for a renewal of their Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) will now receive an automatic 540-day extension of their employment authorization while their renewal application is pending. You can read more about this here.
However, it can still be confusing for many employers and employees to determine exactly when EAD holders are eligible to work, especially with having to keep track of recent changes.
Thankfully, USCIS has now added a new online tool to help both employers and employees determine their exact employment eligibility periods.

This tool allows you to quickly determine your exact eligibility by simply answering a couple questions about your eligibility category and expiration date(s). To make the process easier, be sure to have your most recent EAD card and most recent receipt notice on hand.
