It’s time to renew your green card, but is renewing the best choice?

That’s for you to decide, but let’s do a quick comparison of the benefits of renewing a green card versus applying for U.S. citizenship.

  • With citizenship, you’ll never lose your status as a citizen of the United States.
  • Citizens can also take full advantage of all the rights reserved for citizens in the U.S. such as the right to vote and hold a U.S. passport.
  • And you’ll save money by filing for citizenship. Citizenship is a one-time fee, but you would have to renew your green card every ten years.

If you renew your green card you’ll keep all of the benefits you previously had, but you’ll miss out on the new rights and opportunities afforded to citizens.

Here’s a brief video to explain the benefits of each option:
