USCIS - NEW ASYLEE ORIENTATION ON BENEFITS AND SERVICES
Who should attend? • People recently granted asylum status • immigration attorneys • Resettlement agency staff • Service providers who serve new asylees
Why should you attend? Most asylees do not receive a direct link to refugee resettlement case management services and, as a result, must navigate information and service connections (many of them time sensitive) largely on their own. The session covers important topics and is live for Q&A.
This orientation is held live in English, Spanish, and Mandarin with many Q&A opportunities.
Orientation on Benefits & Services Available to Asylees The San Francisco Asylum Office is pleased to announce a virtual orientation for persons with asylum status. You have the right to receive new benefits and resources as a newly granted asylee. Some of these benefits are limited and time sensitive, beginning on the date that you are granted asylum.
Sessions are held once per month. While optional, we strongly encourage you to attend. If you wish to attend, you will be required to share your mobile number or email in order to receive a registration link. This orientation focuses on California benefits and services. However, some information applies to persons with asylum status throughout the U.S.A.
