My husband had an interview this morning today and the female officer who interviewed him told him that I need to send them joint sponsor's most recent tax transcript(s) and some papers but AGI on my 2020 tax transcript shows I made 39k in 2020. I don't live with anyone in the US but it will be my husband and me. What should I do about it? Contact them or US Senator?

Are you self-employed?  If not, what did you list as your current (as in 2021) annual income on the I-864?

 

No. I made over 21,500 in 2018 and 2019. I got DQ in February 2021 and my 2020 tax transcript didn't update until March, they asked me to upload my 2020 tax transcript or bring it to US Consulate, but my husband brought it to her today. Paystubs, unemployment benefits and SSDI.

Yes, but why I need a joint sponsor if I made more than 21,500?

If you have a joint sponsor, then you need to provide information from them.  As to the poverty number, that is just a guideline.

 

Good Luck!

SSDI cannot be counted.  CURRENT income (vs. previous income, which would be 2020) is king.  If the majority of your current income came from SSDI or unemployment, then that is why they are asking for a joint sponsor.

For what purpose?  You already know the reason for the 221g.  No US senator will intervene into a consular public charge decision.

None of that answers the question about your CURRENT income.  2018, 2019, 2020 are all in the PAST.  Unless you saved some of your past income into substantial assets or investments, your past income does not matter much to the consul officer.  Current income is what matters most and is based on your employment earnings at the time of your husband's interview.  You mentioned unemployment benefits, so does that mean you are currently unemployed?  If so, your current income is 0.  If that's the case, it's no surprise that the consul officer asked for a joint sponsor.
