H4 ead approved but h4 Cos pending

My h4 ead card has arrived but h4 application is still pending, can i start working based on the ead

I suggest to wait till you get your H4 COS approved as you need a valid H4 status before you can use your H4 EAD card.

But is it possible to have ead before h4 cos or could be system glitches

Hi Riaah,
Qq: Did you complete your biometrics for H4 ?
And was your application for H4 extension?

Hi @riaah
Your H4 COS approval should also be on the way.

We are seeing that USCIS is approving H4 EAD earlier than H4 these days.
