Despite the fact that the fourth pandemic stimulus check is likely to be off the chart for approval and distribution any time soon, Americans who are struggling with their financial burden amid the surge of Delta variant cases and unemployment may still be in touch with other benefits and manage debts to replace the aid that has been lost. In October, a limited number of Americans will receive some form of stimulus money.
The chances of a fourth stimulus are next to none, so individual states have taken initiatives to organize their payments to keep their citizens assisted in their financial situations. While any money received is not an official federal stimulus check, payments may arrive in certain people’s bank accounts during the month as part of alternative economic stimulus package programs developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and through state initiatives.
Check out the list from the International Business Times report below to see if you are qualified to receive any of the funds:
Recipients of the Expanded Child Tax Credit
Those who qualify for the Expanded Child Tax Credit will get the fourth of six payments around the 15th of the month. Since July, parents have received monthly payments of $300 per kid under the age of six and $250 per child up to the age of seventeen, with the payments slated to stop in December 2021.
Idaho Tax Credit
Idaho residents who are full-time residents who filed income tax returns in 2019 and 2020 may be eligible for a small rebate that will be distributed at any time in 2021. For qualifying residents and service members utilizing Form 43, the amount will be $50 per taxpayer and dependent, or 9% of the tax amount recorded on Form 40, line 20, or line 42.
The Golden State Stimulus in California
The Golden State Stimulus II will pay eligible Californians in the coming weeks, provided they file their 2020 tax returns by Oct. 15. The amounts that can be received depend on many qualifying circumstances and range from $500 to $1,100.
The Back to Work Program in Arizona
Following the termination of unemployment benefits, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced earlier this year a new program that would pay a $2,000 bonus to any full or part-time workers who had previously been receiving unemployment benefits after they completed eight weeks of work. Anyone who completes that term within the following month should expect to be paid.
