Try for those that allow you to continue using the accounts even if you are overseas .

No limitation as far as I know. As long as you have ssn and pay taxes. I have accounts with couple of brokerages

Hello H1B community - I apologize if someone has asked this question already, I tried looking but didn’t find much on the topic. What should I do if my status is expiring in the next month? My OPT is expiring in June and I was approved for H1B but via consular notification, not change of status. I was supposed to go to India in April for stamping but obviously couldn’t given the circumstances. Is anyone in the same boat / have any advice?
