I visited your site for EAD/I485 receipt number data and found all numbers for NBC is starting from MSC19(90x)xxxx for Nov and Dec filers. However,your status report for latest approval shows MSC19(062)****. Anil, where do you get these 062 running numbers for NBC ? I am not able to link or understand, so please clarify the same.

Hi @anand_win
The numbers are picked up from forums and other sites where users have shared it.

Sometimes, when the user has not shared any number or just a part of the receipt number, our service tries to find the best receipt number based on other data like the receipt date and service center just to give users an idea about what the number may be.

This feature is new and currently in beta testing and you may notice some issues. Thanks for understanding.

First and foremost, I appreciate your efforts to collate data at one nodal with marvelous work. Based on data from various sources, it appears like MSC19(90x)xxxx are running , since end Oct/Nov 2018 for NBC. This may be looked into as a input for reviewing at your end. Thanks for your service :sweat_smile:

Sure. I appreciate your feedback.
We will certainly make changes to the service based on your inputs

The service is still new and may not be 100% correct. Its developed by volunteers.

I appreciate your patience.

Hi @Priyanka

You can expect your i485 pending EAD by June 2019 end.
Do let us know when it is approved to help other users get an idea too.


I updated my case on the site, however it didn’t update the site itself. My PD was 12/31/2018 and got approved May 13/2019 - 133 days.

Hi @pmaladi
There is no need to worry. Not all H4 EAD applications are processed at same time. You will get approval soon.
