A: If your work permit renewal application was received by USCIS on the same day your previous permit expired, and you have a receipt notice as evidence, you may still be eligible for the automatic extension of your work authorization for up to 180 days while your renewal is pending. It's essential to keep the receipt notice and any related documentation as proof of your timely submission in case it's needed for employment verification during the extension period.
