Yes. If your perm is pending approval for more than a year, you can get 1 year extension beyond six years which means your perm must be filed more than 1 year before your max out date.

My perm was filed in October 21 and it’s pending but just had my H1B extension approved after it was filed in January 22 - I am assuming you just need to have a pending perm but I could be wrong

The CPB officer put the i94 end date as my stamped visa date. My i94 is still valid.

Validity dates - July 1 2020 to 2023
