How to make claims before it’s too late

Although there was no application process and payments should have been issued by the end of 2021, you may need to act if you were eligible for a check but did not receive one.

Maine’s Department of Administrative and Financial Services (DAFS) told The Sun it has sent relief checks to more than 524,000 working people.

So there are only a small number of people who have not yet received their payments.

This can be you if you have recently had a change of address.

“We forwarded payments when a forwarding address was registered with the postal service, but this was not always the case,” DAFS said.

Another reason why you may not have received a payment is that it has either been lost or stolen.

If the above or any other reason applies, please contact Maine Revenue Services no later than “by March 31, 2022,” according to DAFS.

It can be contacted at (207) 624-9924.
