The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) of the US Department of Health and Human Services has released information on the main federal benefits that Ukrainians who have received or will receive a humanitarian parole into the United States can claim.


By "Ukrainians" the American side means citizens of Ukraine and persons who are not citizens of Ukraine, but have recently resided in Ukraine.


Accordingly, Ukrainians who received or will receive a humanitarian parole into the United States (including participants of the Uniting for Ukraine program - U4U) in the period from February 24, 2022 to September 30, 2023 in connection with Russia's armed aggression against Ukraine, have the right to apply for basic benefits available to refugees during the period of their humanitarian parole (except for the US Department of State’s Reception and Placement program). The spouses or unmarried children under the age of 21 who receive a humanitarian parole into the United States after September 30, 2023, are also eligible to apply for these benefits.


Benefits will be available only for 12 months from the date you receive the humanitarian parole.


Ukrainian humanitarian parolees are eligible to apply for federal mainstream benefits, such as cash assistance through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Supplemental Security Income, health insurance through Medicaid, and food assistance through Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).


Ukrainians will also be eligible for cash benefits, medical care, job preparation and job search assistance, English language training and other services provided by the Refugee Resettlement Office (ORR).


To obtain benefits, you must contact the state government benefits office or the nearest refugee resettlement office. The list can be found at https://www.acf.hhs.gov/orr/map/find-resources-and-contacts-your-state.


Prior to your entry into the United States and receiving the relevant federal benefits, we recommend that you issue an insurance policy on our website, which is valid worldwide.
