  • Receipt notice vs Receipt for replacement of lost EAC

    Hi, guys.
    I need an immediate help!!!!!!
    I applied for OPT STEM extension, got approved, but the card got lost in mail.
    So, I applied again by checking "Replacement" slot on I-765 for the replacement of lost document, and I've got a receipt notice for the 2nd application.
    Since my grace period is ending probably before I get my card, I need to show the document to fulfill I-9 "Receipt rule" to hold my employment for 90days.
    HR specialist of my school says that I need to provide the "receipt for the replacement of the lost card" and she says this "receipt" should indicate that the USCIS received an application to "replace" a lost document. And, I-9 instruction says "a receipt for a replacement of a lost, stolen, or damaged document" will suffice to hold the employment for 90days.

    So..Is the "Receipt for a replacement" that my HR specialist and I-9 instruction refers different from the "Receipt Notice [I797c]" that I've received from USCIS?
    Then, how can I get the "receipt" stating that my application was for the replacement of lost card?

    Please Please Please help me!!!!
    Lots of appreciations!!!

      Did anyone get an answer to this question? I'm in the same situation: is the receipt for replacement the same as the receipt notice that you receive after applying for a replacement card? I sent a new application for replacement but the receipt I got in the mail is the same as the receipt I had received for my application for an initial employment authorization.
