Stimulus Checks have made the American citizens heave a sigh of relief. Reports portray that financial aids have helped the citizens to focus more on productivity.
Now they do not have to worry about their financial burden. Analysts reported a sharp decrease of 10% in defaulters since the onset of aid. IRS rolled out provisions for aiding families who have a total count of four members.
The qualified family is set to receive a sum of $11,400 provided they have two children who are within 17. In case the family has not yet received the Stimulus Check they can check their eligibility on the IRS site.
People earning below $75000 were entitled to receive the stimulus payments. According to reports, the money provided is not enough to see the Americans for long.
The amount received by the citizens will soon be used up. Most households have a huge backlog of payments like rent. The economy also took a massive hit because of the shutdown.
All the economic activities were forced to be postponed. This resulted in many people losing their job. The ones working from home did not get paid sufficiently.
As a result, Americans have become desperate for new stimulus checks. The pressure has been mounted further on the government with the help of a petition.
Let us take a detailed look below.
