If you are unemployed, do not have a job or cannot find a job, but still need money to survive, then the government is here to help you. Yes, if you are an unemployed youth, or a senior citizen with a retired life or have left job due to disability of some kind, or you cannot work due to disability, then do not worry since our government has got different schemes for people like you to survive.
Let us quickly go through what options can we have for the above states so that we can survive, the very first option which is applicable to all citizens is known as living on the SSN, yes, if you are a citizen or green card holder in the United States of America then the government pays you a stipulated amount every month or year for your living, given that you are unemployed or retired or disable and not able to work.
The second most possible option I can think of is the government grants, yes there are different kind of grants provided by the USA government for its citizens, thou grants are always not granted, but a big ratio of possibility is there that you get your grant sanctioned, to know more about different kind of grants and how to apply you can visit the government website that I have included at the end of this article.
The next best option is to go for government loans, yes even unemployed people can take loans but do note that grants and loans are different things, wherein you have to return the loan amount with an added interest and grants are not required to be returned back to the government.
