Motivated by the recent results in the standard model (SM) Higgs boson search at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) we investigate the SM-like CP-even Higgs boson of the U(1)'-extended minimal supersymmetric standard model (UMSSM) and its branching ratio into the b b-bar, W W*, and \chi^0_1 \chi^0_1 modes. In the Summer 2011, a 2 sigma excess was reported in the channel H -> W W* -> l+ nu l- nu-bar around 130 - 140 GeV range. Later on in December 2011 announcements were made that an excess was seen in the 124-126 GeV range, while the SM Higgs boson above 131 GeV up to about 600 GeV is ruled out. We examine two scenarios of these mass ranges: (i) 130 GeV < M_{h_{SM-like}} < 141 GeV and show that the Higgs boson can decay into invisible neutralinos to evade the SM bound; and (ii) 120 GeV < M_{h_{\rm SM-like}} < 130 GeV and show that the Higgs boson can avoid decaying into neutralinos and thus gives enhanced rates into visible particles. We use the \eta model of E_6 with TeV scale supersymmetry to illustrate the idea by scanning the parameter space to realize these two different scenarios.
