Cashier’s Checks worth up to $465 available to Americans starting next week – are you eligible?
September 22, 2022
ELIGIBLE residents of West Virginia will receive a relief check worth up to $465 starting next week.
The West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources said an additional payment will be available in 2022 for residents who were part of the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP).
What is LIEAP?
The Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) is administered by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR), Bureau for Children and Families, Office of Programs and Resource Development, Division of Family Assistance.
LIEAP helps eligible households with home heating costs through direct cash payments or payments to utility companies on their behalf.
Eligibility is based on a combination of factors, including income, type of heating payment, and total heating costs.
You can also check with your state about LIEAP and whether you qualify.
How much will you get?
If you were part of the LIEAP program in West Virginia in 2022, the exact dollar amounts will range from $25 to $465, depending on the amount of aid needed.
However, the method of obtaining that payment will depend on how you specifically used LIEAP.
The state Ministry of Health and Human Resources explained that the payment will be made to the energy supplier or a check will be sent to people who have received LIEAP for bulk fuel.
All West Virginia residents who qualify for this exemption can expect payment by the end of September.
Other states with auxiliary checks available
As The US Sun has reported, in recent months there have been at least 20 states that offer exemption checks for which you may still qualify.
Not to mention that residents of at least nine states can get stimulus checks that can earn you up to $1,700.
It is important to keep up with these updates and act quickly, as there is no certainty about a fourth stimulus check yet.
If you’re still unsure about getting incentive payments, you’re not alone.
If you think you should receive a stimulus check and are still waiting, the IRS provides a tool to track down your payment.
Also, keep your eyes peeled for scammers, who will often try to text you for help, as communicating with them can cost you money.
