NO Insurance and unemployed on GC

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I don't have a job and insurance. I don't qualify for Covered California because I qualify for Medi-cal insurance. Please answers the following.

1. Being on GC for more than 5 years can I apply for medical? Do 5 years on GC matters?
2. Any impact on GC status as I have a citizenship interview in 3 weeks?
3. What should I answer if I am asked in the interview for the current employer, is having an employer a must?

I would rather not take Medi-Cal even if there is 1% doubt please clarify.

Thanks!

1. Yes. In fact, in California, you can apply for Medi-Cal immediately after becoming a permanent resident, without a 5-year waiting period (of course, assuming you meet the income requirements). In most other states you have to have been a permanent resident for 5 years before you can apply for Medicaid.

2. No impact on your status under current rules. No impact on naturalization. If you immigrated through family-based immigration, the sponsor(s) who filed I-864 for you could in theory be asked by the state for reimbursement for need-based benefits received before you become a citizen, but I do not believe California or any other state seeks reimbursement.

3. Not at all. Whether you have a job is not a factor in naturalization.

You have absolutely nothing to worry about. Just answer any questions truthfully. At this stage, there is no risk to your Naturalization.
