Stimulus Check: Americans are Receiving $600 and $1,200 Payments. Will You Receive One?


Many Americans will be shocked to see how much money has been deposited into their accounts in a few days. People who don’t expect checks in the amounts of $600 and $1,200 are receiving them.

The Department of Agriculture will hand out these checks to a certain group. For example, a $700 million plan includes farmworkers and meatpackers, and some grocery store employees.

The goal is to assist staff who were crucial during the pandemic’s peak period with financial aid. However, the amount of money given to grocery store workers has yet to be determined.

This check has nothing to do with the IRS. Instead, the federal government, municipalities, and nonprofit organizations are in charge of it. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack is in charge of distributing the money.

“We recognize that our farmworkers, meatpackers, and grocery employees overcame unprecedented difficulties to make sure that Americans could eat and sustain their families during the epidemic,” Vilsack said.

    This is not fair that the people who are on disability and social security will not qualified too receive a fourth stimulus check. I am struggling financially. I am 62 years old a widow and I don’t make enough to pay my bills. I own a house with a mortgage and a home equity loan. I am behind in my bills. I am 80lbs. I am lucky to put food on my table. You all are forgetting about us and it is a shame.

    I would like to know what they are going to do for the rest of us. Is a lot more people than them worked through the pandemic and they don’t get shit. I think that if you’re gonna give it to some of the people give it to all of us.

    What about the company’s who kept the stores stock with drinks. Someone had to make them. So these drink companies never shut down they kept running and put their families at wrest as well. The grocery store couldn’t stay open without food or drinks.

    The disabled and seniors are the ones in the US that need help! Not the illegals or those who have full time jobs!
