Most Common Problems Resulting in Processing Delays No evidence of NSEERS compliance by applicant (if applicable) For (c)(8) applicants (employment authorization while an asylum claim is pending): while an applicant may file the Form I-765 150 days after filing a complete asylum application (not counting delays requested or caused by applicant if the asylum application was filed on or after 4/1/97), an EAD cannot be issued until 180 days have passed on the asylum KLOK. Applicants should check the number of days on KLOK prior to filing. (800-898-7180)
Most Common Problems Resulting in Processing Delays For replacement EAD cards: evidence must be submitted to establish that the EAD card was lost, stolen, mutilated, or contains erroneous information. This may be a letter from the applicant stating the EAD card was destroyed in a fire or stolen and may include police records or pieces of the mutilated card. For renewals EAD cards: copies of prior EAD cards should be submitted. For renewal EAD cards filed more than 120 days before a previous EAD expires: an explanation of why the alien is seeking a new EAD should be submitted.
