The $3 trillion Heroes Act includes a provision for another round of stimulus checks sent to Americans. Each eligible adult may get another round of $1,200 making less than $75,000 per year, and $2,400 for married couples making less than $150,000 per year.
Under the CARES act, each child under 17 years old was to get $500 per child, which now would be bumped up to $1,200 for each dependent, not just children under 17 not to exceed $6000 per family.
A social security number wouldn’t be a requirement to receive a payment. The payment would be a direct deposit, followed by paper checks in the mail, and these checks also wouldn’t be subject to garnishment.
The bill would also extend the unemployment benefits of weekly $600 federal payments through January 2021 instead of July of 2020 as the stay at home orders continue.
