ELIGIBLE California residents will receive more assistance starting today.
The next batch of paper Golden State Stimulus II checks will ship before the holidays.
According to the California Franchise Tax Board, the final batch of about 750,000 checks was sent out on Nov. 15, totaling about $555 million in aid.
The aid is part of the state’s ongoing stimulus program designed to help people affected by the Covid pandemic.
About 9 million residents will receive checks before the end of the year.
Eligible residents will receive as little as $500 and up to $1,100 depending on their scenario.
When will I receive my check?
Payments began in September via direct deposit and will continue year-round via paper check.
On November 29, residents living in areas with the last three digits of their zip code ranging from 585-719 will be sent paper checks.
