Stimulus check and Public charge issue

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Hope you are doing well.

If an individual on H1B waiting for Green Card cashes a stimulus check then will it be considered as a public charge and affect his green card?

Please advise.

Thanks.

No, stimulus check is not treated as public charge. Its just advance on your next year taxes.

If you are talking about the COVID stimulus amount which we got direct deposit into our bank accounts then NO it will not come under public charge.

Hi Gopal

Thanks. But I heard some saying USCIS has not made any statement yet and it’s better not to deposit the checks until USCIS makes some statement in favor.
