If you have a card that covers rental cars (CSR, Amex Hilton) do you decline rental insurance and use the card benefits?

Hi 🐠! My firm is willing to file an EB3 GC for me, however I’m from a highly backlogged country and was wondering what’s the realistic timeline for it from start to finish?

What would you do?
