The United States economy has weathered one of the deadliest worldwide pandemics in history, despite inflation. Congress is unlikely to approve another stimulus check for the vast majority of Americans as the jobless rate remains at 3.6%.
Despite this fact, speculation persists that Social Security beneficiaries will get a fourth stimulus check payment. While Social Security payments to seniors and the disabled tend to come on time, they do not increase with inflation. Because of this, Rick Delaney, chairman of The Senior Citizens League (TSCL), recently wrote to Congress requesting that each Social Security recipient get a one-time $1,400 stimulus check payment.
Delaney sent his missive in October of 2021, for context. That was seven months ago. Talk radio, newspapers, and internet organizations have all covered the letter over the last seven months (including The Ascent). There has been so much discussion about the potential for a fourth check that it is understandable that some people may be confused by it.
