Another Stimulus Check coming in September 2021
Another Stimulus Check coming in September 2021

The United States has seen a shift from federal government providing financial aid to citizens to a more state-centric system, so this means that stimulus checks are now arriving from the states that have put money aside to try and support their citizens.

Fears caused by the COVID-19 pandemic remain across much of the US, particularly with president Joe Biden stating that 80 million Americans have still not been vaccinated, so this financial aid will come as a welcome relief to many whose jobs remain up in the air. The Delta variant has not helped things, too.

Here, we have taken a look at the states where stimulus checks are either being prepared or debated, or where money is already being given out to residents. We'll also explain how to qualify for these fourth stimulus checks.

Stimulus Checks status - Stimulus Updated List The deadline for distributing the money is December 31, yet some states are already in the process of sending out checks where they are most needed. Below, we run through the various states and explain the situation regarding stimulus checks in each.

Alaska

Residents in Alaska may qualify for some additional money through the Federal State Extended Benefit program, which could bring another 13 to 20 weeks of checks. This, though, is only possible for certain residents and it depends on how much of this pot of money has already been claimed. Furthermore, Alaskans are waiting for updates regarding what will happen with the annual oil wealth checks.

Arkansas

The situation in Arkansas is still very much up in the air, with the Arkansas state government currently involved in a legal battle with its own residents over the end of the federal unemployment benefits that were worth 300 dollars per week. Until that battle is resolved, any talk of a fourth check is likely to have to wait.

California - Golden State Stimulus

As things stand, California is the only state that have sent a stimulus check from their own money in the form of the Golden State Stimulus, as the state has a budget surplus due to their tax system. Residents earning 30,000-75,000 dollars a year are entitled to 500 or 600 dollars, as well as 500 dollars to be paid to households with dependent children. (Read more about the California stimulus).

Colorado

People who received at least one unemployment payment between March 15, 2020, and October 24, 2020, will receive 375 dollars. However, those on higher incomes who qualified for more than 500 per week in employment benefits will not be eligible.

Florida Stimulus checks

Most teachers and administrators were allocated a 1,000 dollar payment, though things are still in development.

Georgia Stimulus

Georgia's plan is generous, and full-time teachers and administrators will pocket 1,000 dollars, while part-time teachers will take 500 dollars. Pre-K educators will also likely have payments to claim.

Maryland

All state and local taxes on unemployment benefits have been repealed, and stimulus payments of 500 dollars for families and 300 dollars for individuals who filed for the Earned Income Tax Credit were also passed in the legislation.

Mississippi

Mississippi was one of the first states where the unemployment benefits stimulus payments ended early and there are currently no plans for more stimulus checks to be paid out. This is one of the states where a fresh round of payments looks unlikely.

Michigan

Michigan have sent 500 dollar hazard pay bonuses to their teachers.

New Mexico

The state's program have plans to distribute five million dollars to residents who didn't qualify for the federal payments.

New York

In New York, there is a 2.1 billion dollar fund for undocumented workers who were unable to claim financial aid via the federal stimulus. In order to qualify, you will need to be a resident of the state and have made less than 26,208 dollars in 2020.
