Military Family Appreciation Month

November 2023 is Military Family Appreciation Month

Military Family Appreciation Month is celebrated in November to recognize the sacrifices made by military families. Spouses and children of active and retired military members, including immigrants and non-citizens, may be eligible for special citizenship benefits and services.

Special USCIS Citizenship Benefits for Military Families

Military families make many sacrifices, and the U.S. government offers special citizenship benefits and services to show its appreciation. Some of these benefits include:

  • Expedited naturalization for spouses of active-duty military members stationed abroad.
    This allows spouses to waive the physical presence and continuous residence requirements for naturalization.
  • Naturalization or citizenship for children of service members stationed abroad.
    Children may apply for naturalization without traveling to the United States.
  • Citizenship survivorship benefits for spouses and children of deceased immigrant military members.
    This includes citizenship if the service member died from an injury or disease caused by their military service.

Did you serve in the U.S. military and wonder if you’re qualified to become a U.S. citizen? Do you have family members who are non-citizens? 

The United States does not require you to be a citizen to serve in the U.S. armed forces. Active military members and former service members and their families who are not United States citizens are entitled to certain benefits in appreciation of their service. Due to their military service, immigrant military service members and their families have special immigration benefits – including naturalization benefit.
