$600 and $1,100 Stimulus Checks Going Out Now

(TheDailyHorn.com) – Do you want another stimulus check? If you live in California, you may be in line to get a nice year-end gift from Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).

On November 29, checks started going out to state residents. Officials said the state would send the last payments on December 17. It’s part of a $12-billion COVID-19 relief plan known as the Golden State Stimulus II program.

Here’s the catch. Eligible households need to meet specific requirements to qualify for the $600 to $1,100 payment. You need to have been a resident of the state for at least half the year in 2020 and be a resident at the time officials issued the check. Your California adjusted gross income for the 2020 tax year must be between $1 to $75,000, and your 2020 tax return has to have been submitted to the state no later than October 15, 2021.

In a statement, Newsom said lawmakers designed the program to help those hardest hit by the pandemic. Residents can use the money to cover their basic needs right within their communities. In total, the Golden State expects to mail 800,000 checks and send 3,000 direct deposit payments. The state said direct deposits should show up in bank accounts within a few days of the electronic deposit, while paper checks could take up to three weeks to arrive by mail.
