Many Americans may be entitled to a fourth stimulus check, but if they qualify will need to wait until 2022 to collect.
A lot of people are waiting to see if there will be a fourth check, but it doesn’t seem likely at this point. Some Americans, however, can expect a fourth in 2022.
Who gets a fourth stimulus check?
When new parents notify the IRS when they file their 2021 taxes, they’ll get that fourth check.
Single parents making up to $75,000 per year and couples that make up to $150,000 per year will qualify for the full $1,400.
Other people that qualify for aid, but not a federal stimulus check, are those who live in states like California and meet the criteria necessary to be given the money.
Many states are choosing to give additional help to lower income families that faced hardship due to the pandemic in the form of their own stimulus programs, or a pilot program of Universal Basic Income, like in Los Angeles or Chicago.
