My 1st year on EAD expires in the next two weeks. USCIS has already started processing my EAD extension in the first week of May. But i haven't received my updated EAD card yet.
I am currently on F1.

What happens if I don't get the updated EAD card before the current one expires?

    Yes as long as a decision is pending and you filed for your extension on time, you can continue to work for up to 180 days or until a decision is made.

    The 180 day automatic extension rule applies to certain specific classes of applicants, not everyone on L2 or H4.

    Check https://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/automatic-employment-authorization-document-ead-extension

    You'll need to talk to your employer, they should be able to take your name off their payroll when you don't have a valid EAD, so you can resume when you get your extension completed.
    Additionally, I've also heard that people request expediting their application citing financial hardship, but I don't know how effective that is or how exactly it is done.
