Several waves of Stimulus Check funding have been given to the United States since the COVID-19 outbreak began.

And the fact that some folks are going to get more of it may come as a bit of a shock to them. Since the government shows no signs of issuing another stimulus check, this is your last chance to receive free money from the government.  

Stimulus Check For North Carolina Residents

In 2022, the U.S. government plans to start issuing stimulus checks to families with children who were born in the years 2021 or 2022 through foster care or adoption. A new dependent or the parents of a kid born in 2021 will receive some government assistance. The parents of the newborn child must complete a tax return for the year 2021 and send it in by the end of 2022 in order to get the money. North Carolina residents may soon be eligible for a monthly stimulus payment of about $2,900, according to an upcoming update. Some locals may find this a welcome break from the spiraling cost of living.

The South Region Consumer Price Index data provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (which includes North Carolina) showed an increase of 8.7 percent in the South Region Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) for all products in September. North Carolina state residents will soon receive $2,900 in monthly financial aid, which is good news for those struggling to keep up with rising prices.

With the recent announcement that residents would experience an average 8.7 percentage point rise in monthly COLA payments, retired couples now get a total of $2,972 per month in benefits.

Nearly 1.7 million (17%) of North Carolina’s population is 65 or older, according to data from the United States Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program (PEP).

According to a recent survey by the National Poll on Healthy Aging, the elderly are particularly vulnerable right now. About 36 percent of seniors between the ages of 50 and 80 have reduced their healthy diet as a result of rising food costs.
