Unemployment insurance is considered an earned benefit and does not affect your immigration status. This is insurance that you and your employer have already paid for.

USCIS has also announced publicly that unemployment insurance is an earned benefit that isn’t considered for the public charge review.

Applying for unemployment insurance will not hurt your ability to renew your green card or apply for citizenship.
