Default Strange situation: Forgot to renew my EAD but got my GC: Please help..

Hi,

I'm in a strange situation. I just got my green card (I have an L2) yesterday so it is great news. But somehow, today I was checking my EAD since it becomes obsolete and I just realised that I completely forgot to renew it before it expired 2 months ago, early January. So it means that I worked the past 2 months with my expired EAD but got my green card nevertheless.
Do you have any advice as what I should do? Should I check with my HR about the EAD...
Thanks a lot for any help

I wouldn't worry about it. Enjoy your green card.

Actually I have an L2 not an L1...hence the need of an EAD before the green card...

Now that you have the GC, quit worrying about expired EAD and all that crap. Enjoy the freedom and privileges of green card life. Don't worry about trivial things like EADs now.

Congratulations - you have 90 days after it expires to renew it. Since you got your GC within 60 days, there is nothing to worry about. You must however talk to your HR with a copy of ur GC and update the I-9. But that is just for records and should there be an audit, you should be all set.
