I completed my interview June 10, 2019 for my Nexus and was approved. They said it will take between 3 - 4 weeks to receive my new card in the mail.

I forgot to ask if I can continue to use my old card while I wait for new card. I was able to do this the last time I renewed as I was crossing the border the same day.

Everything is the same except I am now using my maiden name.

  • Is your card actually expired, or did you just change your name? Jun 12, 2019 at 19:00
  • My card expired March 13. I submitted my renewal in January and had my interview June 10

You can continue to use your expired card for up to six months whether or not you've completed the interview so long as you've reached the conditional approval stage.

See this page:

If you submitted a renewal application before expiration of your current membership, then you can continue to use your benefits until the renewal is finalized (up to 6 months after your expiration date).
