2013 Poverty Guidelines (DHHS and USCIS)

posted Mar 20, 2013, 7:06 AM by Randall Drew
The Department of Health and Human Services publishes the Poverty Guidelines every year. And every year USCIS takes way too long to publish their guidelines based on 125% of the Poverty Guidelines. It has now been almost two months since the Federal Register Posting and there is still no new form I-864P on the USCIS website. You might think USCIS would get some advance notice of the guidelines from DHHS and have the form ready ahead of time -- they don't. So I have posted them here ... make sure you doublecheck my math (I rounded up)!
