Unemployment Benefits w/GC

Is it OK to collect unemployment benefits while on a conditional green card (or permanent green card)? My husband is going to be laid off in a week or two, assuming he is allowed to collect benefits in our state, is it OK to do so? I'm worried that he is not allowed under the conditions of the I-864. Sorry if this has been discussed before, I searched and couldn't find an answer.

Thanks!

That is correct, as long as the state allows it there should be no problems. They will ask for his immigration status but as long as you are a permanent resident and not on a B visa or anything else that is temporary, you will be able to collect in almost all states.

He can collect unemproyement (i think up to 12 months for some companies) because unemproyement is insurance the employer pays for you; but he can not get extended unemproyement, or welfare or government assistance if he is under the conditional green card.

Unemployment benefits in most states are usually for 6 months.

Permanent residents CAN get extended benefits.


Our journey together on this earth has come to an end.

I will see you one day again, my love.
