Did you know that all male US citizens (age 18-25) need to register for Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday? And, all non-US citizen men between 18-25 years of age also much register?
In California, only 38% of men registered when they turned 18 years old. Apparently 92% of men, 18-25 years old, have registered in the rest of the United States.
The penalty for not registering for the Selective Service is up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. In 2018, the Selective Service referred over 100,000 names and addresses of suspected violators.
By registering and complying with the Selective Service, these men are eligible for opportunities both now and in the future: federal financial aid, state-funded student financial aid in many states, most federal employment, security clearance for contractors, job training under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Ace, and US citizenship for immigrant men.
To be considered for Small Business Loans and FEMA grants/loans, male applicants need to be registered with the Selective Service.
