I have had a green card for a number of years and am in the process of applying for U.S. citizenship. I was recently laid off. Will this impact my naturalization application? Does it matter if I take unemployment benefits?


Ordinarily, being laid off would not impact one’s naturalization application. Similarly, applying for unemployment benefits typically would not have any impact on an application for U.S. citizenship. (02.Apr.2020)
