Employer Letter

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am wondering what kind of information should be included on the Employers letter stating that im employed and work full time hours etc. 

Should I have my employer include the fact that i got several raises and that made my yrly income jump, because my annual on the 40hr work week is a little short of what i expected. My w2 shows a lot closer to what  I imagine we need to meet req. Are they going to just look at the annual put in the letter or are they going to weigh in the w2 forms being much higher? should I include the wage increase info or not on the letter ?  

To file for the i 134 do i go by the annual income sum stated in the employer letter or the w2 from last year? 

Could anyone provide some good sample letters I might be able to get to the HR department for my company? They are willing to make adjustments if i need any for my situation.

Current income is what counts.

The I-134 should list current income. This is how much you make in a 12 month period. So if you get paid weekly and work every week of the year, that's $paycheck * #paychecks_per_year.

This is separate from providing your tax return copy or what you made last year. The CO can consider those factors, but current income is calculated as above, and is king.

Yes, thanks for the responses. My apologies for wording it wrong, i am aware of the poverty guidelines.
I do meet 100% of poverty guidelines but im about $300 short of 125% if it only counts my annual income without counting the bonuses and overtimes that I do.

It might be wise to have a co sponsor lined up. The CO will evaluate the totality of the circumstances to determine the public charge risk, not just minimums.

GROSS income as shown on the W-2 is what used.

 

Employment letter should notate how long you have worked for the company and gross income, nothing fancy.
