USCIS has extended the validity of green cards for those who applied for their renewal
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) automatically extends the validity of green cards to 24 months (instead of 12) for holders of these ID cards who apply for their replacement or renewal. This is mentioned on official website of the department.
“Effective September 26, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will automatically extend green cards to 24 months for applicants who file Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card. This extension is available to lawful permanent residents who have properly completed Form I-90,” USCIS said in a statement.
Previously, after filing Form I-90, the validity of the green card was 12 months. Now it has been doubled. This is done so that in the event of a long paperwork, the legal status of the green card holder is not interrupted.
On September 26, USCIS began issuing modified notices to individuals awaiting Form I-90 review. These notices may be submitted along with the expired green card as proof of continued legal status while the new green card is being processed.

If you no longer have a green card and need proof of your legal permanent resident status while waiting for a new green card, you can request an appointment at your local USCIS office.
