Will I lose my permanent resident status if I do not renew my Green Card?

A Green Card serves as proof of its holder's permanent residence status in the United States. While Green Cards have an expiration date, permanent residence status does not. This means you will not lose your permanent resident status if you do not renew your Green Card. However, Green Card holders are required by law to carry evidence of their legal status with them at all times (e.g.; a valid, unexpired Green Card or the temporary proof of status received at the time of filing the Green Card Renewal Application.) Failing to renew an expiring or expired Green Card, will cause difficulties in obtaining employment, benefits, and re-entry into the United States from abroad.
