Stimulus Check Update: Here Are 5 States Offering EIPs


Although the US government is considering the introduction of another package, it does not seem probable that there will be another wave of federal stimulus checks.

Following the COVID-19 epidemic, the stimulus checks were meant to help Americans make ends meet and give some assistance to people who are in need.

President Joe Biden signed a $1.9 trillion rescue bill in the Oval Office back in March 2021, enabling payments to be issued as soon as possible.

States and local governments continue to provide residents with customized payouts even if the federal government has stopped issuing stimulus checks. 

Are You Eligible For Stimulus Checks?

The most recent municipality to announce that residents will get stimulus checks is West Liberty, Iowa. Iowa will provide the stimulus fund of $700. Workers who were ineligible for government stimulus checks will get the funds. Members of the West Liberty city council decided to move through with a plan to give out stimulus money to about 200 homes.

Eligible Residents of Chicago, Illinois, may request cash for their transportation and gas cards each month. In May, millions of people in the state of Indiana began to receive their refund payouts. The reimbursements are worth $250 for married couples and $125 for single people.

85 percent of the adult population of Indiana—or 4.3 million people—will get the $125 payout. The state of Maine will provide $850 stimulus checks to taxpayers who filed their state income tax returns for the year 2021. To qualify for the reimbursement, residents had to have filed their tax filings by 31 October and not have been listed as dependent on another person’s return.

New Mexico will also send out tax rebates this month. The reward for single filers is $250, while the payout for joint filers is $500. Eligible individuals will not need to submit an application in order to get the tax rebate.

And over 236,000 individuals in Oregon will get $600 stimulus payments this week. Low-income employees who worked through the epidemic are receiving payouts.
