Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) Issued by the Potomac Service Center (PSC) may need to be replaced!!

Starting on April 17th, the Potomac Service Center (PSC) will begin handling corrections to Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) originally issued by PSC which included incorrect information due to USCIS error. Previously USCIS customers were instructed to send their incorrect EAD’s issued by the PSC to the Nebraska Service Center (NSC) to be corrected.

 

If your EAD was originally approved by PSC and contains incorrect information due to their error here is how to request an EAD correction.

You must return the original card along with a detailed explanation of the any errors and supporting documentation to the PSC at:

 

Potomac Service Center 

U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services 

2200 Potomac Center Drive, Stop 2425 

Arlington, VA 20598-2425

 

You don’t need to submit a new Form I-765 or filing fee. The PSC will issue a corrected EAD within 30 days if the errors are found to be USCIS errors. If the PSC determines that your card contains incorrect information that is not due to USCIS error, the PSC will return the EAD card to you so you can follow the normal process to replace an incorrect EAD which is explained on this USCIS web page, “Employment Authorization Document”.
