Let go from H1B sponsored job while in adjustment of status

Hi All

Apologies if there is somewhere else that I'm supposed to post this question - I'm still pretty new here.

As my husband is currently unemployed and figuring out what he wants to do with his career, we used my salary (with my H1b sponsored job) for the I-864. I found out recently that my job is going to end (in the next week) and so we no longer meet the income requirement. I've got one of my American cousins to co-sponsor me and he's filled in all the paperwork and sent it to me. Should I wait until the interview (which is due to be scheduled soon) to bring this up or should I call USCIS now?

Any advice greatly appreciated!

An issue for the interview.

So I don't have to worry about my application being delayed when my employer informs USCIS that I'm no longer employed (which is likely to happen before my interview)?

No, smack in that adjustment, sooner the better.
