Replace Permanent Resident Card
Brief Introduction

Permanent Resident Card (USCIS Form I-551) is proof of your permanent resident status in the United States. It also serves as a valid identification document and proof that you are eligible to live and work in the United States. It is important to keep your card up-to-date. Without a valid card, it may be difficult for you to prove that you are a permanent resident, and this could also affect your ability to travel or to prove your eligibility to work in the United States. If any information on your card needs to be changed, or if your card has been lost, stolen, or damaged, you need to replace your permanent resident card. Also, if you became a permanent resident before you turned 14 years old, you are required to replace your card when you become 14 years old.

4.You have been a permanent resident residing in the United States and are now taking up commuter status
5. Your status has been automatically converted to permanent resident status (this includes Special Agricultural Worker applicants who are converting to permanent resident status)
6. You have a previous version of the alien registration card (e.g., USCIS Form AR-3, Form AR-103 or Form I-151 – all no longer valid to prove your immigration status) and must replace it with a current green card
7. Your card contains incorrect information
8. Your name or other biographic information on the card has been legally changed since you last received your card, or
