Despite the US government’s thinking of presenting another package, there does not seem to be a high probability that there will be another round of federal stimulus checks.
In the aftermath of the COVID-19 outbreak, the checks are meant to help individuals in need and help Americans make ends meet.
President Joe Biden signed a $1.9 trillion rescue plan in the Oval Office in March 2021, approving the delivery of payments.
States and local governments continue to provide residents tailored payments even if the federal government has stopped issuing stimulus checks.
