TPS Work Authorization Automatically extended while application is pending


Many Temporary Protected Status (TPS) applicants and especially their employers are concerned that their work permits expire while they are waiting for their new card. However, as in previous years, all TPS applicants work permits are automatically renewed as long as they file for their renewal timely.

This means that even if a TPS work permit (employment authorization document - EAD) has an expired date on it, it is still valid due to the blanket automatic extension announced by immigration (USCIS). See the below documents that can be used by both employer and employees:
