The federal government of the United States of America has not made any announcement about giving a fourth stimulus check. On the other hand, American citizens are struggling to manage their financial crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic. Moreover, the exorbitant living costs owing to the current inflation have made it very difficult for people to buy basic needs like gas, food, and medication. In such a situation several US states have stepped up to offer additional stimulus checks to help the residents stay afloat during economic problems.
$487 Stimulus Check For Minnesota People
Minnesota government has taken the decision to come forward and provide stimulus money to their frontline workers. These frontline workers had put their lives at risk during the COVID-19 pandemic to protect the lives of normal citizens. Now it is time for the government to show their respect and gratitude by offering them $487 through the direct deposit method.
The government has already mentioned that eligible frontline workers will receive this stimulus check within this very week. They further added that they have started sending the money out from 5th October.
Details And Criteria
Previously Minnesota decided to distribute stimulus money among 667,000 frontline workers. However, they received innumerable applications who are in desperate need of relief payments. As a result, they will now give ‘hero pay’ to almost 1,025,655 eligible workers.
Since earlier the amount was decided to be $750, with the increased number of eligible applicants, the amount will be $487. Eligible residents will automatically get the relief payments through the mail or direct deposit this week.
Residents belonging to food and education services, courts, long-term care, and healthcare services are considered eligible for this stimulus money by the Minnesota government. This monetary aid is a way to express gratitude to these people.
