Surname misspelled in EAD card (H4 based EAD)


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I received my H4 EAD card today but my Surname on the card is misspelled. It is correct on H4 approval notice though.
I have validated that we filled out the application correctly and this is a mistake from USCIS.

I am wondering now -
1) Can I work based on the EAD card that I have received with misspelled surname ?
2) And what should be the next steps to correct the same?

If any one has experienced this and can provide suggestions please.

From USICS website:

If your EAD contains incorrect information because of a USCIS error, we will make the appropriate correction at no additional cost to you. In these cases, you do not need to submit a new Form I-765 or a filing fee. Instead, you must submit:

  • The original card containing the error,
  • A detailed explanation of the card error, and
  • Supporting documentation on the correct information. 

Submit this information to the service center or National Benefit Center that approved your latest Form I-765.
