Winter Relief Checks

This winter, various states have been sending out cash worth up to $3,284 in winter relief checks, with some still planning to distribute more, according to an article published in The U.S. Sun.

Connecticut is offering winter relief checks to frontline employees in the private sector. About a month ago, the state started sending out bonus cash worth between $200 and $1,000, depending on income, to say thanks to essential workers.

Each week, about 20,000 payments under the state’s Premium Pay program are going out, according to the Comptroller’s office. There are about 120,000 direct deposit recipients who are due to receive the cash, and paper checks will be sent out between March 1 and March 11.

In Idaho, the Tax Commission announced that it plans to send out a total of 800,000 payments by the end of March. To meet that goal, it is issuing 75,000 rebates per week. For single filers, the rebates are worth $300, and $600 for couples. It could also be 10 percent of a taxpayer’s 2020 income taxes, whichever is greater.

The state of Maine is also distributing cash under its Emergency Energy Relief Plan. The relief checks are worth $450 and are going out to full-time residents who filed 2021 tax returns and were not claimed as dependents. Eligible residents can check the status of their relief checks on the Maine Revenue Services portal.

Many other states are also offering payments, including those worth up to $1,000 to parents and direct payments worth up to $3,600. As the inflation rates continue to affect Americans, more states may offer similar relief programs in the future.
