I was selected in the second round for H1B and was approved with an effective date of October 1. The law firm has not received the physical I797 and I’m very worried about using up my 60 days of unemployment. Does the 60 days of unemployment apply given that it’s an initial H1B?

Hi I am in same boat. Cam we DM? Apparently we are legal as the status gets activated from October 1

Bit would want someone to confirm

What did your attorney say when you asked this question?

1-2 weeks? It also depends how far the recipient is from the service center that sent the letter. I’m in Texas, correspondence from TSC comes days faster than from VSC or CSC

Op I just got the notice. My approval was on Sept 20

Literally the day I typed the comment above. Yours is on its way. Don't worry.
