$600 or $1,200 surprise incentive checks are being sent to Americans

SOME Americans get a nice surprise in the next few days – a stimulus check worth $600 or $1,200 and they don’t expect it.

However, only a few specific individuals will be eligible for the benefits.

The new aid campaign was announced earlier this month by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

It’s part of a $700 million program to help farm and meat-processing workers, with some of the money going to grocery store workers.

The aim is to financially boost workers who were vital during the pandemic and help workers who often find themselves at the center of Covid-19 outbreaks, such as supermarkets and factories.

At the moment it is not clear how many supermarket employees will receive.

However, Vilsack broadly outlined the plan in a conference call with reporters on the stimulus control update.

He said the new controls “reflect the essential nature of the work (the workers) being carried out during the pandemic”.

However, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will not handle the new payment, but will instead come from stage agencies, nonprofits and local governments.

However, Vilsack’s office will distribute the funds and hand the money over to the relevant groups for distribution.

Vilsack also added that his agency will prioritize financiers with a track record of responsiveness, such as migrant workers.

“We recognize that our farm workers, meat processors and grocery workers have overcome unprecedented challenges and taken significant personal risk to ensure Americans were able to feed and support their families during the pandemic,” Vilsack said.

He added that “they deserve recognition for their resilience.”

The news comes as the next $300 child tax credit payment is due in about 24 hours in accounts.

Payments must be made by bank transfer and by post by November 15th.

Under the US bailout plan, many families have received four CTC payments to help them get by and get the US economy back to health after the coronavirus pandemic.

Under the bill, families were eligible for up to $3,600 for each child under the age of six.

Parents with 18-year-old dependents who are being cared for may each qualify for a maximum of $500 for the child tax credit they would receive.

Individuals between the ages of 19 and 24 must attend college full-time to qualify for $500.

Many low-income families who don’t usually file tax returns can receive them for the first time, meaning the IRS needs their banking information to send them the advance payments.

Anyone who has not received their payments can register with the IRS.

Families can use GetCTC.org or the IRS’s website and access the CTC update portal to sign up.

Payments of child tax credits begin on November 15
