What are the benefits of asylum?

Generally, you must apply for asylum within one year of arriving in the U.S. Your spouse and children may be included, but this is not required. Normally, any child that is included in your application must be unmarried and under the age of 21, but some exclusions can apply.

Seeking asylum comes with a number of important benefits, including:

  • The right to work in the United States
  • The ability to receive a Social Security card, driver's license or ID
  • Eligibility for lawful, permanent status (green card)
