Hello! My grandfather has lived here in the U.S for the past eight years. He immigrated here in 2010 and does have a green card (no citizenship). He also has Social Security, but has never worked here in the U.S or received any federal benefits.
My grandfather was wondering if their was a way he could get any money for being unemployed. He hasn’t attempted to get employed, mainly because he doesn’t have a lot of employable skills. He’s old, has back problems, has had two stents placed in his heart with surgery (with his own money) and doesn’t know English. He isn’t disabled with anything at the moment though.
He doesn’t want to receive Food Stamps either. What he’d ideally want is a sum of money each month (a small amount, pocket money as he likes to call it) to help him go about his daily life. Right now, my family is financing everything for him. He’d like to not be dependent on us as much.
If anyone needs more information to answer this question, let me know. I’ve love detailed answers to this as we are struggling to find solutions for him.
