  • Unemployment vs. Public assistance

    Hi!
    I have been reading Interview experiences on this board, and a lot of them relay the fact that the immigration offcer inquire about applicants collecting public assistance.
    Well i was unemployed for 4 months last year and (of course!) collected unemployment to get by as I was eligible, does that carry the same weight as collecting public assistance? I hope not!

      No. Unemployment is not a means tested benefit.
      Have a nice day

        unemployment benefits are just insurance which your employer is paying for.
