Husband’s firm is filing for i485 and i140 concurrently and they are saying approval takes anywhere from 10-20 months. Is it possible to change jobs with the ead card? Or is it advisable to stay put till we get the green card.

If you are ROW or you’re current for backlogged countries you will be close to the GC when you get to 180 days. Unless it an once in a lifetime offer I’d wait it out

like

D1 - no, since you didn't get it via employment sponsorship.

Need to wait 180 days after I-140 approval before switching

Yes I was asking about me, my husband doesn’t want to change jobs till he gets the GC and wants to wait for few more months after getting the GC to change jobs

Hey team need some help - I’ve flown United since I was a child, and naturally I’ve flown with them through and through my consulting career. I just flew on Delta for the first time and it was so much nicer than what I’ve been used to. What’s loyalty like here at Delta - and is it worth status matching and becoming Delta loyal? NYC based if that makes any difference. TIA!!

I’ve seen a couple posts lately with comments saying that people should not use a Roth 401k. Does the logic below capture the spirit of that concept? 1. Use trad. 401k to reduce taxable income now. Convert to trad. IRA once retired, then convert gradually to Roth IRA (ladder, SEPP, etc.) at lowest marginal tax rate 2. Use Roth IRA (and/or backdoor Roth) to take advantage of tax free growth and ability to withdraw principal early without penalty

Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits.

They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?
