What is the immigration status for EAD?
Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) are granted when an individual has a pending Immigration Petition for Permanent Residence or I-485. The card permits non-citizens to legally work in the United States for a U.S. employer.
An individual’s work authorization, or employment eligibility, refers to his or her legal right to work in the United States. U.S. citizens, born or naturalized, are always authorized to work in the United States, while foreign citizens may be authorized if they have an immigration status that allows them to work.
For employment, authorization to work in the US is required for a nonresident alien. Resident aliens are generally taxed on their worldwide income, the same as US citizens. Nonresident aliens are generally taxed only on their income from sources within the United States.

Some typical categories of people who require employment authorization include asylees and asylum seekers, students seeking certain types of employment, applicants who are seeking to adjust to legal permanent resident (LPR) status, individuals seeking temporary protected status, fiancés of U.S. citizens, and more.
