On August 3, 2015, USCIS announced that if you are a DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipient who received a three-year Employment Authorization Document (EAD) after February 16, 2015, it was likely mistakenly issued and must be returned.

Approximately 2,100 DACA recipients were issued three-year Employment Authorization Documents, rather than two-year EADs, after the February 16, 2015, court injunction was in place. There has been action taken to correct this issue for these individuals. USCIS has also updated their records to reflect a two-year period of deferred action and employment authorization such as re-issuing and mailing the corrected two-year EADs to these individuals. USCIS has also notified these individuals that the three-year EADs are no longer valid and must be immediately returned, along with any related approval notices.
