Stimulus: $500 stimulus payments going to thousands

Thousands of workers in the state of Massachusetts will soon see payments worth $500 in a few days from a second round of stimulus checks.

This is part of the $500 million dollar program to help low income, frontline workers.

The COVID-19 Essential Employee Premium Pay Program was signed into law in Dec. 2021.

With the two rounds being sent, one with 330,000 checks are being sent this month.

Eligibility for the stimulus check

In order to be eligible, residents need to have filed a tax return for 2021.

Those who qualify need to have been a resident on or before June 15, 2021 in the state of Massachusetts.

Part time residents need to have lived in the state between Jan. 1 and June 15 to see a stimulus payment.

Residents need to have earned at least $13,500 in 2021 and have a household income at or below 300% of the federal poverty line.

This means a single person’s income cannot exceed $38,640.

Over 240,000 stimulus checks were sent in the first round in March.

Anyone that is eligible who did not see a payment from the first round will see one in this round.
