How it works

Applying for immigration relief can be expensive. Our program offers an affordable way to fund your USCIS application fee while building your credit.

Make sure you are eligible to file with USCIS. Have your paperwork completed and ready to send in before applying for MAF’s program. Check out Immi.org if you need help from a nonprofit attorney.

Apply online for MAF’s loan and complete the financial education courses. We’ll mail you a check made out to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security within a week of your application being approved.

Send your completed paperwork and MAF’s check to the appropriate USCIS filing center. Monthly payments will be debited from your checking account, and these payments will be reported to all three major credit bureaus!
