Can I start work with EAD approval notice?

How do I know if my EAD is approved?
It can take a few months to get the EAD approved. Using the receipt number, you can track your case status. Alternatively, you can also call the National Customer Service Center at (800) 375-5283. Once your petition is approved, USCIS will send you a plastic EAD card.
Does EAD get rejected?
An EAD denial for an I-485-based EAD is not common. Typically, a denial is issued if the individual’s I-485 is approved while the EAD is pending. In such an instance, the applicant is granted permanent residence and is no longer in need of or eligible for the EAD.

Can my OPT be denied?
