Those who hold on to the hope of a fourth stimulus check continue to do so in spite of the fact that inflation had exacerbated the hardships, families continue to face following the COVID-19 pandemic.
For the awareness of everyone, there is no direct payment planned and nobody should expect a check to arrive in their accounts in November, despite the fact that Congress is working on other laws to provide relief and assistance.
On Friday, the House passed a bipartisan infrastructure bill worth $1.2 trillion that funds road construction, port improvements, and internet access nationwide.
Nonetheless, according to reports, Joe Biden will not sign the latter back into law.

Moreso, the Build Back Better Plan, which provides money to expand social programs, has yet to be passed, so anything that looks like stimulus aid is not yet in place.
The Build Back Better Plan included paid leave for families, community college, and Medicare dental and vision coverage.
This plan, which had initially been estimated to cost $3 trillion, was cut to a package worth $1.75 trillion.
Meanwhile, funding for climate change, extending Medicare benefits, increasing child tax credits, and providing universal pre-kindergarten were all preserved.
A similar reduction was made to these programs, including only one-year extensions of the Expanded Child Tax Credit rather than the original three-year extension.
Providing assistance in the form of the Child Tax Credit remains on hold as the legislation is held up in the House, where it must get Moderate Democratic support before proceeding to the Senate, which will also likely face fierce opposition.
On November 15 and December 15, there will be two more payments released, but if the bill is not passed in 2021, the additional payments for 2022 will not be cleared.
There will be no delays in payments because of this bill, as opposed to how Congress hindered the second 2020 stimulus check release.
Some people can still receive an outstanding $1,400 check from the American Rescue Plan even though a stimulus check does not appear to be on the table.
