New Stimulus Checks Arrive Today If You Live In This One State


On Monday, the fifth round of child tax credit checks began to be distributed, with an estimated $15 billion going to 36 million families across the United States. Meanwhile, a few hundred thousand families in one state will receive a new stimulus payment in addition to the child tax credit, and we have all the details right here.

The extra stimulus check will be distributed to 524,754 residents of Maine, where Governor Janet Mills recently announced $285 in Disaster Relief Payments. They’re intended as a thank-you to workers who kept vital businesses running during in the COVID-19 pandemic’s early days.

Maine’s Department of Administrative and Financial Services will begin releasing checks on November 15 and will continue to do so until the end of the year.

Maine: New Stimulus Payment

In a statement about the payments, Gov. Mills said, “The hardworking men and women who kept our state running during the pandemic deserve our appreciation.” “My Administration will send one-time payments of $285 to more than half a million working Maine people as a result of the bipartisan budget passed by the Legislature and signed by me.” As we work to fully recover our economy, I hope this will help Maine families in some small way during the holiday season.”

Payments are made in batches to eligible Maine residents. Over the course of six weeks, between 5,000 and 25,000 checks will be issued on most days. There will be no direct deposits because the checks will be issued on paper, and they will all be issued by December 31.

Based on tax filings for the 2020 tax year, the State Tax Assessor determined who is eligible for these payments. The following are some of the requirements:

  • Beneficiaries must have resided in Maine entire in 2020. They must also have earned wages, compensation packages, tips, or other taxable employee pay during the fiscal year 2020.
  • By October 31, 2021, they must have reported that income on a Maine individual tax return.
  • In addition, for the 2020 tax year, eligible recipients must have had an adjusted gross income of less than $75,000 (or less than $150,000 if filing jointly).
