I Have been a permanent resident for 6 years now and I was out of country for last 5 months and back now. I am interested to apply for the citizenship now but the Naturalization Requirements Information document says an applicant for naturalization must Show that you have lived for at least 3 months in the state or USCIS district where you claim residence. I have been living in my current state for last 3 years and maintained a residency in my state while I was out of country. Can I apply for citizenship now or do i need to wait for three month's to claim the residence in my current state and then apply?

I am currently unemployed and does this affect anyway the citizenship application? I am also not claiming any unemployment benefits.

Thanks,

You are good to go. The rule applies to people who move from one residence to another. If you have been living at the same residence (or the same area) for the past 3+ months, and you meet all the remaining requirements, then you should be all set.

Read the naturalization guide, it has a lot of important information and also has a page that checks your eligibility.

good luck!

Even if you worked the past 5 months on a space station hovering above the blue planet, you would still have resided where your dirty laundry has been piling up. It's also not required that somebody who wants to become a US citizen has to have a job. If so, no wealthy people could become Americans. Wouldn't that be something?

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
