Millions Of People Will Be Getting A Stimulus Check In June. Here’s What We Know.

It’s finally June, and you know what that means?

In THIS case, it means that millions of Americans will be getting a fourth COVID-19 Stimulus Check.

WHAT?!? How? Who? When?

Hang on. I’ll tell you everything we know.

Everything We Know About The June 2022 Stimulus Check

Congress sure hasn’t taken the initiative to get money into the hands of people who need it.

So, what gives?

According to NewsBreak, there are a couple of states that are sending out relief money to residents in need.

How cool is that? States are seeing that their residents are struggling, and they are doing what it takes to help.

This is especially good in light of the gas crisis that is ravaging this country.

I can barely afford the money that goes straight into my gas tank.

It would be so great to have a little help in the financial department, just to better afford me the opportunity to get to work.

Who is eligible for the 2022 June Stimulus Check?

So far, there are only two states that are handing out relief money: Maine and New Mexico.

Is it too late to move to Maine (New Mexico is too hot!!)?

There isn’t a set standard for this money. Each state is doing its own thing.

In Maine, payments will be available to those who filed their 2021 state tax returns. The checks total $850. Single filers are eligible with an adjusted gross income of less than $100,000 while married joint filers can get payments with an AGI [adjusted gross income] of up to $200,000.

It is important to note that, if you are claimed as a dependent by another individual, you are NOT eligible to receive a relief check.

Meanwhile, in New Mexico, single filers are eligible to receive $250. If you file jointly, you can expect a total of $500.

A second payment for the same amount will be sent out [later this year]. This money will be provided to those who submitted tax returns by May 31 and the payments will be sent automatically.

When Is June 2022 Stimulus Checks Being Sent?

June. Stimulus checks are supposed to drop in Maine and New Mexico THIS month.

Residents of Maine will see the $850 checks in one lump sum sometime this month.

While New Mexico’s residents will have two rounds of checks. Residents should receive $250 this month, and $250 again in August.

Are Any Other States Going To Hand Out Stimulus Checks?

There are a couple other states that are considering setting funds aside to help residents make ends meet.

Minnesota, Colorado, Kansas, Hawaii, and Pennsylvania are contemplating legislation that would authorize payments. BUT, the bad news is, this is NOT guaranteed.

They are just thinking about it.

Are There Any Other Financial Relief Sources On The Way?

Word is, the federal government is also in the process of shelling out money to struggling homeowners. Up to $3,708, to be exact.

What a randomly specific number, right?!?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining. Every little bit that we can scrape together counts.
