H4 EAD Auto Extension?

Hi, Currently unemployed and H4 EAD is expiring on May 9th 2024. I have sent the renewal application which is in transit. I94 is valid till Dec 2026. How auto extension will work in this case ? Is it based of application filing date or getting receipt number back. Please suggest.

If your H4 EAD extension receipt date is before current EAD expiry AND your i94 is valid, then you should be eligible for auto extension.

Thank Anil for your response. I mean it reached to Phoenix USCIS today, hopefully they generate receipt date before May 9th.

Checked with USCIS, per them it should filing date. Receipt date can be after the current EAD expiry date.
