Hello

In new form i539, Is it required for individual applying for H4 extension to mention details about Temporary Disability Insurance due to pregnancy and Family leave insurance for child bonding received between April to June 2019 from the State of New Jersey under Public Benefit section?

also, i539 instruction says, mention only benefits received on or after October 15 2019 but the question under Public charge in i539 says - 

“Since obtaining the nonimmigrant status that you seek to extend or from which you seek to change, have you received, or are you currently certified to receive, any of the following public benefits? (select all that apply)”

Could you please help me understand whether to mention benefits listed above that too received before Oct 15 2019 by checking below box on the form along with required evidence  ?

“Any Federal, State, local or tribal cash assistance for income maintenance”

Thanks much in advance!

Implementation of the new forms and public charge rule has been postponed. However, it is still advisable to be aware of the issues the Administration is concerned with and to speak with a knowledgeable attorney prior to taking any benefits you believe may be considered "means tested".

This is a fact-specific question that requires a discussion regarding the parameters and requirements for the program and eligibility for the subsidy.
