Stimulus Update: Petition for $1,400 for Seniors, Golden State Check Delays & October's Child Tax Credit

A petition for a stimulus check just for seniors has been put out by the Senior Citizens League aimed to help social security recipients. The group’s president wrote to Congress trying to get an additional $1,400 to help this “financially fragile” group afford basics like food and heat as inflation continues to rise.

Rumors about a fourth stimulus for everyone else are still out there, and while it’s most likely not going to happen, some states are still offering their own help.

Californians got cash from Gov. Gavin Newsom by way of a budget surplus. The third round of Golden State stimulus checks are being sent this month. California is reporting delays in getting the money out to 9 million eligible residents, citing printing and mail problems.

Other states are providing their own versions of relief. For example, Colorado residents who received an unemployment check between March and October got $375. Over in Maryland, stimulus payments of $300 for individuals who filed for the Earned Income Tax Credit and $500 for families who filed. New Mexico and New York are providing aid to people, including undocumented workers, that did not receive federal stimulus money.

Teachers received some “thank you” money, as well. In Florida, $1,000 checks went out to teachers and other first responders. Georgia, Hawaii, Michigan and Tennessee plan to give either $500 or $1,000 bonuses to teachers by the end of the year.

Parents are getting help paying for their children’s expenses by way of the advance Child Tax Credit payments. This stimulus offers a routinely-used tax deduction ahead of filing for taxes. Depending on how many children a family has — and how old they are — changes how much money is sent out. The fourth installment will be deposited on or about Oct. 15.

There is good news for anyone who has so far been ineligible for federal or child tax credit checks. If you have not filed your 2020 taxes, you can still do so and receive the stimulus money. If taxes are filed by these crucial dates in November, one or more checks could end up in your pocket. Find out more here.

If you did file your 2020 taxes, you’ll need to call the IRS and find out what’s happening. That number can be found here. A word of caution: they probably won’t answer the phone.
