Benefits for Immigrants in California
Legal US immigrants have rights to benefits
If you are here legally, you may be missing out on benefits you are entitled to receive
Many legal immigrants (whether they are lawful permanent residents or naturalized U.S. citizens) do not apply for benefits for which they are eligible because they fear that they will tip off the authorities about any undocumented members of their families. However, one agency is working with community groups to ensure that people who apply for health insurance are reassured that their family members are safe.
