Delays Between I-765/I-485 Approvals and EAD Receipts due to Facility Maintenance

Delays have been reported between the approval of a client’s I-765 or I-485 and the client’s receipt of the employment authorization document (EAD) or lawful permanent resident card. USCIS confirmed that the card production facility in Corbin, Kentucky is undergoing maintenance, and that all card production work was transferred to the facility in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. As a result of this transfer, there is a backlog of cases in Lee’s Summit so clients may not receive their LPR cards until two to three weeks after approval of the underlying application. USCIS anticipates that this backlog issue will be resolved sometime this month.
