Many Americans Will Not Receive A Stimulus Check For These Reasons
While many Americans are waiting to receive their stimulus check, there are going to be some who may be disappointed and not receive the money they are expecting.
There are a number of people who fall through the cracks of the stimulus package and will not be receiving any money at all or perhaps not as much as they were hoping for.
According to NBC News, these are some categories of people who will not be receiving money,
For millions of Americans awaiting coronavirus cash, help is not on the way.
Although the $2 trillion stimulus bill passed last month includes payments of up to $1,200 for everyone who makes less than the limit, many Americans will fall through the cracks. That includes most college kids, immigrants without Social Security numbers and some disabled adults.
Why so many gaps? Part of it is the urgency that faced Congress as it rushed to get money to Americans as fast as possible. There wasn’t much time to fine-tune the bill to address every contingency. Lawmakers opted to base eligibility on tax returns, even though many people don’t file them.
Congress also wanted to ensure that the money goes to those who really need it now. Most Americans could use some extra cash even in the best of times. But some people’s livelihoods have been more directly affected by the pandemic than others.
For those who qualify, payments will start going out from the IRS in mid-April. The IRS is using 2019 tax returns to determine eligibility or 2018 returns for those who haven’t filed for 2019 yet.
Here’s a look at who falls through the cracks:
- College Students and 17-year-olds
- Disabled people whose parents support them
- Seniors living with their kids
- Immigrants without Social Security numbers
- Babys born in 2020
- High earners who lost their jobs
- Parents who split custody
- Recently divorced or estranged
- People who owe back child support
Of course, Democrats are trying to fit some these into their plans and fighting for money for immigrants who shouldn’t be here in the first place.
Let’s take care of our own countrymen first. Those who came here illegally took the chance and now they need to face the facts that they’re not going to get any help this time around.
