Thousands of Americans Have Less Than Two Weeks Left to Claim Their $500 Relief Payment

Americans have LESS THAN TWO WEEKS to take action and request a $500 relief check.

The Department of Family and Support Services and Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot have set aside $14.68 million to launch the Chicago Resiliency Fund 2.0.

Applications will no longer be accepted after December 9; they will now only be accepted through Saturday, December 31.

Up to 25,500 residents will receive a one-time payment from the government.

Who is eligible?

The program aims to assist Chicago residents who might have missed out on Covid-19 stimulus checks.

Candidates will be chosen at random in a lottery draw after applicants submit an online form by the end of the month.

Chicago residents must be at least 18 years old and earn no more than 300 percent of the federal poverty level.

The criterion for one-person households is $40,770.

The following requirements must also be met by residents:

claimed a dependent who was 17 years old or older on tax forms for 2019

They are a domestic worker or a resident without documentation.

Only one application may be submitted per household, officials have warned, as duplicates will be rejected.

Candidates must successfully pass eligibility checks intended to thwart fraud or any other illegal activity before being chosen.

Either a bank transfer or the money will be loaded onto a prepaid debit card.

Officials have stated that they intend to send out all payments no later than December 2023.

Other payments to claim

Other deadlines that are coming up quickly are in the meantime.

Included in this is Hawaii, which has been distributing rebates up to $300 since the start of the fall.

You must submit a 2021 tax return by December 31 in order to claim your rebate.

For rebates ranging from $300 to $600, Idaho residents must file their 2021 tax returns by the same deadline.

About 75,000 checks are issued each week by the state’s Tax Commission, which distributes the funds according to the order in which they are received.

Pennsylvania’s Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program, worth up to $1,658, will have another deadline.

Cash assistance is available to Americans 65 and older, 50 and older widows and widowers, and people with disabilities.

The maximum income to be eligible for relief is $35,000.

Additionally, more than two million New Jersey renters and homeowners have access to payments.

They have a potential value of $450 and $1,500, respectively.

According to the New Jersey Department of Treasury, the following groups are eligible for funding based on income.

$1,500 for homeowners making up to $150,000

$1,000 for homeowners earning between $150,000 and $250,000.

Up to $150,000 in annual rent: $450

Candidates must submit their online applications by January 31, 2023.
