What Are the Benefits of Securing a Green Card?
You may be wondering what rights and freedoms a green card will grant you. Once you possess a green card, you will be able to:
- Live legally in the U.S. on a permanent basis
- Work in the U.S. on a permanent basis
- Receive benefits related to your health and education
While a green card can be incredibly beneficial, many green card holders’ ultimate goal is to become U.S. citizens through naturalization.
Becoming a Citizen Through Naturalization
Almost without exception, you must be a permanent lawful resident of the United States and possess a valid green card in order to begin the naturalization process. The naturalization process allows you to become a U.S. citizen, which grants you the right to:
- Receive a U.S. passport
- Leave and reenter the U.S. at any time
- Vote in federal and local elections
- Serve on juries
- Petition for relatives to immigrate
In addition to the benefits above, one of the major differences between being a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. and a citizen involves grounds for deportation. As a U.S. citizen, you do not face the risk of deportation.
