AC21 | I-140 approved under SOC code 00-0000 | Job change

Recommended Posts


      My I-485 (EB1C) was filed in 2107 & I-140 was approved in June 2018 under SOC code 00-0000. My EAD (primary applicant) is valid till Dec 2021. Can I change jobs?

If yes, can I file supplement J under any managerial SOC code?

While SOC 00-0000 is a novel choice, the USCIS is unlikely to take that to mean there is no restriction. The SOC Code on an EB1C petition is selected by the petitioner, unlike in an ETA Form 9089 case when the DOL selects the code. It is unwise for one with such a code as 00-0000 to not follow the AC21 statutory language of "same or similar occupation classification." It would be a safer move to compare one's new potential job offer against the job profile of the I-140 petition.
