Hello Team, My intial OPT period was : 5/18/2020 to 5/17/2021 Applied for STEM extension and case receipt by uscis : 4/6/2021 i797 receipt notice received to work for additional 180 days till : 11/14/2021 Decision about STEM extension EAD did not arrive on 11/14/2021 and hence employment was terminated since EAD not received and officially one cannot work on an expired EAD. STEM EAD decision approved by uscis : Jan 6,2022 I would like to understand if the duration from 11/15/2021 till 01/06/2022 would count for unemployment because I was out of work as I had no EAD and I got EAD decision on Jan 6,2022. Please guide on this matter this would help me in understanding the calculation for unemployment days. Because ideally from Jan 6,2022 my EAD approved and so the closck would begin from there on for unemployment accrual of days.
