ONE lucky state will receive a fourth stimulus check next week.
The stimulus of the golden state
You will be eligible for payment if you earned less than $ 75,000 last year and lived in California for most of the year.
To be eligible, no one should be able to claim you as a dependent, and you must file your 2020 taxes by October 15 of this year.
If you qualify, you will receive $ 600 plus an additional $ 500 to cover any dependents you may have.
It’s important to note that if you got money in the first round of the Golden State Stimulus, you won’t receive a new check this time around.
Your check will not be affected by the number of dependents you have, as the extra money only comes if you have dependents.
California lawmakers say those stimulus checks will be issued by the end of the month, meaning they’ll be released in less than a week.

Much like the federal stimulus program, direct deposits will be made first, followed by mailed paper checks.
Power to petition
A study showed that the first three stimulus checks were essential in reducing problems such as food insecurity and financial imbalance.
The petition says that “the recovery has not reached many Americans” and notes that immediate checks are needed with regular payments to “keep your head above water.”
In Florida, some educators and first responders are receiving federal stimulus funding.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in March asked the legislature to set aside $ 216 million from ESSER to deliver $ 1,000 checks to principals and teachers.
Educators began receiving these bonuses at the beginning of August.
Checks for $ 1,000 in bonuses were issued to every law enforcement officer, EMT, firefighter and paramedic in the state.
DeSantis called the checks distributed this month a “little token.”
He said: “I mean obviously there is a lot more that everyone wishes they could do, but we thought it was important to say ‘thank you’.”
“First responders work every day – regardless of the conditions – to keep us safe.
“This has perhaps never been more evident than in the past year and a half during the pandemic. I am proud to present these checks to show our immense gratitude for their service.”
