Immigrant Eligibility and the Stimulus Package

April 24, 2020 @ 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm

This Friday (April 24) at 4 p.m., join Evangeline, ILCM’s Archbishop Ireland Justice Fellow, to learn about the requirements immigrants must meet to be considered eligible for the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).
In March, Congress passed the CARES Act, which, among other things, directed the IRS to make payments of $1200 for individuals or $2,400 to married couples who meet certain requirements. Those eligible can receive an additional $500 per qualifying child.
This Facebook Live event is intended to give a brief overview of the eligibility requirements for receiving these payments. We will be addressing topics including: “How Does the IRS Determine My Income?,” “I Am Not a U.S. Citizen, Am I Eligible to Receive a Stimulus Payment?,” and “The Green Card Test and the “Substantial Physical Presence Test.”
This is not intended to be comprehensive legal advice. If you have specific questions regarding your case, please contact an immigration attorney. You can reach ILCM at 651-641-1011. ILCM does not provide direct services on tax/monetary issues. Please contact Legal Aid – Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid and/or Prepare and Prosper if you have questions regarding those topics.

The same information will be shared in Spanish on Friday, April 24, at 5:30 p.m., by Ana Pottratz Acosta, an immigration law professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law, also on ILCM’s page.
