Help permanent residents naturalize before the fee waiver rules change next month!
Citizenship Workshop will be on Saturday, November 16th, 2019 from 8:30am – 4:00pm at CET – Immigration & Citizenship Program (701 Vine Street, San Jose, CA 95110)
Help make a last push for immigrants to get their citizenship before the fee waiver rules change!
On October 25, 2019, U.S.C.I.S. announced that lawful permanent residents who are receiving a means-tested benefit such as MediCal, food stamps, etc. will no longer qualify for a fee waiver based on getting public benefits. The new fee waiver form that does not include an eligibility category for the means-tested benefit will be required to be used by December 2nd. After December 2nd, applicants for citizenship can still apply for a fee waiver based on their latest tax information (tax transcripts) or based on financial hardship.
To help more low-income clients apply for their citizenship using their means-tested benefits, we will be having a citizenship workshop on November 16, 2019. This will be in partnership with the Social Services Agency of Santa Clara County (SSA). SSA will be reaching out to their clients and providing verification of benefits, which they can still presently use to get the waiver.
We will need as many volunteers as possible so please join us on November 16.
