H1B Approved but OPT_STEM_EXTENSION_RFE query


Recommended Posts

I need help with one of the query I have regarding the OPT stem extension RFE that I received.
I filed for opt extension in the last week of March as my initial opt is going to expire on May 2021. I received an RFE on July 2021 asking for “Employment History”.  Last day to submit supporting documents is end of second week of September 2021.

Meanwhile I filed for H1B and my application got picked and is approved and is effective fromOctober 1st 2021. 
Question: Do I need to respond to the opt stem extension RFE or Can I ignore as we have automatic extension of 180days  while opt is pending for approval?
Request you to please help me in this.

Please advice.
