To which Potomac Service center location was your application sent?
 Posted by jaychatterjee on 09 Feb 2018
I forwarded my application to a lockbox facility in Dallas. It was then re-routed to a potomac service center (IDK if there are multiple such facilities)

Hi @jaychatterjee,

How did you raise SR thru Phone? I called them but I couldn’t get through to the right department.

 Posted by jaychatterjee on 12 Feb 2018
I don't remember how I navigated their automated system, but if you listen to options correctly, you will come across an option to talk to a customer representative. I know the option for that is by pressing 0, just not sure in which menu.

Did you receive your card? Mine was mailed yesterday, I'm trying o figure out how long it'll take for me to receive it. Thanks!
 Posted by jaychatterjee on 14 Feb 2018
Yes I got my EAD card today.
 Posted by frisbee on 15 Feb 2018
Hi Jay, thanks for all your replies. Did you receive an approval notice also before you received your card?
 Posted by frisbee on 15 Feb 2018
Today I just received the approval notice but not the card, and it says I’ll get the card separately. I was wondering if that’s normal or should I contact USCIS.
 Posted by jaychatterjee on 16 Feb 2018
That is normal. Even though I got both the same day, I think it's common for ppl to receive both on separate days. I wouldn't call USCIS
