Delays in Production of Work Authorization and LPR Cards

AILA Doc No. 15082732 | Dated August 27, 2015

Multiple AILA members have reported delays between approval of a client's I-765 or I-485 and the client's receipt of the employment authorization card or lawful permanent resident card. USCIS has confirmed that the card production facility in Corbin, KY is undergoing maintenance, and all card production work was transferred to the facility in Lee's Summit, MO.

As a result, there is a backlog of cases in Lee's Summit, and clients may not receive their cards until two-three weeks after approval of the underlying application. USCIS anticipates that the backlog will be resolved sometime in September 2015.
