Online Public Charge Screening Tool

Dec 22, 2021

We encourage you to use this online screening tool with immigrants and those who assist them to understand which immigrants face a public charge test and which benefits are included in the public charge test. The website lists the federal names of the benefit programs, has a separate page with CA-specific information, and is available in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Thanks to our partners at PIF-CA, Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County, Immigration Advocates Network, as well as staff at CLASP and NILC for helping make this online tool possible.
