H1B transfer and retaining priority date

Hi,

Recently I got H1B transfer approved. I submitted my I-140 approval from current employer during the transfer to the new client. Is there any way I can confirm that my PD got retained? my new employer will start the GC process right away when I join them, but I dont want to restart my PD.

Can you please help.

Thanks you.

The PD will be retained if you file new i140 with new employer. Once the new i140 is approved, you can check it on the i140 approval.

Thank you. I was looking at my H1 approval notice, and I dont see the Alien Number on my approval notice so I am confused if they have retained my PD or not. I hope the PD is needed only when they apply for new I-140 and then specify to retain the PD.
