Alaska residents will soon see payments totaling $ 5,500 with two separate payments coming their way from the state.
As the chance of a 4th stimulus check diminishes, states are working to provide residents with help.
Inflation is burdening Americans everywhere, and states offering aid are trying to offset rising commodity prices.
Why would Alaska residents see a $ 5,500 stimulus payment?
The stimulus package was approved by the Senate, but must still be approved by Parliament.
The second payment is part of a program the state offers to residents that gives them a surplus of oil revenue.
The payment this year would be worth $ 4,200 if passed.
Whether the Folketing will adopt the bill is unknown.
The bill could pass, but dollar amounts could be drastically lowered.
