I am a sponsored alien and I apply for pregnancy medical. The welfare ask about my family support, if it is a gift or loan. Is either of them going to disqualified me? Will that make a difference?
State/Country relating to question: Washington
Hello, welcome to JustAnswer, my name is XXXXXX. XXXXX you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
What is your legal status in the SU
In the US?
Do you have a Green Card?
yes, a conditional one
Your husband sponsored you?
my husband and one of his friend
the welfare place first want to know the value and how often my sponsors give me and i told them they didn't provide support yet because my family support me. then they want to know the money they give for the past three months and if it is a gift or a loan.
What welfare aid are you applying for?
it is emergency fund,
if it is emergency medicaid then your sponsor may not have to repay it
you have not been given any money in hand from either your husband or family so it is neither support or loan
I know that part, but now they ask about my family support, if they are gift or loan
no one gave you any money in your hand did they
if anything it would be a loan
something you will pay back when you get on your feet
no, not the sponsor. but my family from my country do, they wanna know if it is gift or loan
how much money have they sent you from back home
do they expect you to pay that money back?
k, i have 6400 on hand now
that is a lot of money
i let them know i want to pay them back
so, will that disqualify me?
well you have to ask them
it seems like it is enough to pay for your prenatal care and delivery
so if it is then they may disqualify you
if you promised your family you would pay it back it is a loan
the state i live need 2800 of income a month to support 3 of us, anything less than that will be qualified for the pregnantcy medical
We are getting off immigration
no, at least 9000 for that, if we use all that how can we survive
I am not a welfare specialist or expert
Do you have any more immigration questions
OK, take care of yourself and your baby
Tell them it is a loan
