    • If you send the required materials after that, the effective date of the Offer Letter will be the date you finally submit the last of the required materials (or a later date if you prefer, for instance if you need to wait for your EAD start date).

You are allowed ten days from the Effective date of the Offer Letter to file it with the portal, so this gives you plenty of time.
