Stimulus checks have been sent by local governments after the federal stimulus payments helped so many people, and so do UBI payments.
While this is helpful for Americans, what has been even more helpful are UBI programs.
The difference between stimulus payments and UBI payments is that stimulus payments only happen one time.
UBI, or Universal Basic Income, payments are recurring.
This could mean weekly, monthly, or even annually.
