When am I getting my inflation check?
Inflation checks are not a guaranteed payment and will not be automatically mailed to you. The amount of an inflation check, if any, depends on the particular economic policy of the government in charge at the time.
The current US administration passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) in 2020, and this act authorized the Treasury Department to send stimulus checks to all Americans with incomes under certain limits.
As inflation is an economic concern, the government may choose to send out additional relief checks due to inflation, but this is not guaranteed.
If you do become eligible for an inflation check, you may need to register with your local or state government or with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Additionally, the IRS may verify your identity using two-factor authentication, such as a one-time code sent to your phone or email.
Alternately, you may be contacted via mail or phone to provide additional information.
You can stay up-to-date on any additional relief payments by checking the IRS website or speaking directly with a representative. You may also be able to find out about additional inflation checks from news outlets or social media.
Who qualifies for relief check?
The Coronavirus Relief Checks, also commonly referred to as stimulus checks, are payments that were approved by the United States government as a part of the CARES Act. According to the CARES Act, individuals who earn $75,000 or less in adjusted gross income are eligible to receive a payment of $1,200, while couples who make less than $150,000 will receive a payment of $2,400.
Individuals with an income between $75,000 and $99,000, and couples with an adjusted gross income that’s between $150,000 and $198,000 will also receive a reduced payment depending on their adjusted gross income.
In addition, families with children can receive an additional $500 for each qualifying child, provided that the qualifying child was under the age of 17.
It is important to note that anyone who is claimed as a dependent on someone else’s tax return is not eligible for a relief check. People who are claimed as a dependent are typically those who are under the age of 17, students, or people who can be claimed on someone else’s tax return due to their relative low income.
Who gets hurt by inflation and who benefits?
Inflation can have a significant impact on the economy, and it can hurt or benefit different groups of people depending on the situation. Generally speaking, inflation hurts those on fixed incomes, such as retirees or those living on government benefits, because their income does not keep up with rising costs due to inflation.
Inflation also makes it more difficult for businesses to plan long-term investments, as the value of their money diminishes over time.
On the other hand, people who benefit from inflation are those with large amounts of debt, because their debt is worth less in terms of purchasing power due to inflation. Also, those who are in a financial position to save or invest their money benefit from inflation as well, since their money is more likely to gain higher returns due to the decrease of the value of money over time.
Additionally, people who own businesses benefit from inflation, as they can raise prices of their goods in order to keep up with the rising costs of their overhead.
