The American Rescue Plan Act has provided Americans with many checks and tax credits as relief from the pandemic.
Many people say a fourth check is necessary.
Specifically, for senior citizens. The group called The Senior Citizens League is pushing to get another $1,400 sent out senior citizens.
While seniors collecting social security just got the news that their payments would increase by 5.9%, or $92, they may not see any difference.
Rising inflation and Medicare costs will likely eat the extra cash up.
The group currently has an online petition to gather signatures to support the efforts.
The chairman of the Senior Citizens League recently addressed Congress as well, saying seniors are still suffering.
He added they cannot afford their prescription drugs.
