4th stimulus check update 2023 — Millions to get payments up to $300 from $2.8billion pot in days – see if you qualify

Rebates expected in just days

Thousands of Americans are in line to receive cash worth up to $300 – but requirements must be met.

This summer, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey signed a $393 million rebate package into law.

It includes one-time direct payments worth $150 for individuals and $300 for couples.

The package was made possible thanks to a $2.8 billion surplus in Alabama’s Education Trust Fund.

Now the rebates are slated to go out in November, as the holidays approach.

“When the state found itself with a historic budget surplus this year, Governor Kay Ivey proposed a one-time tax rebate for working Alabamians,” a spokesperson with the Alabama Department of Revenue told The U.S. Sun.

Make sure to claim your money

The Minnesota Department of Revenue revealed that there are roughly 150,000 uncashed checks that are set to expire this month.

Residents were advised to double-check their mail, and reissued checks were sent in mid-November and more are going out the first week of December.

The maximum rebate is $1,300 and eligibility was based on 2021 tax filings.

The original checks may have been thrown out by owners believing it to be junk mail, returned for personal reasons, or never reached recipients due to addresses not being updated.

Advice on budgeting and saving money

On TikTok, an ex-Wall Street trader has shared her top five budgeting and saving advice:

  • Try to save three to six months’ worth of spending money, with any excess going into a high-yield savings account.
  • Pay off your bills in the sequence of highest to lowest interest. Set up an IRA and/or Roth IRA and remember to invest the funds.
  • No investment is guaranteed, but you may focus on low-risk investments for a more predictable payoff over time.
  • Invest in stocks/bonds, yourself, and any side hustles that interest you.
  • Make a budget for future spending.

LinkedIn retirement settlement payout

LinkedIn retirement settlement will also pay out $6.75 million to resolve claims that the company violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) by mismanaging its 401(k) retirement plan.

Plaintiffs eligible for free money include participants, beneficiaries, and alternate payees of the LinkedIn Corp. 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan and Trust.

Keep in mind that you must have participated in the plan between August 14, 2014, and July 1, 2020, to score the cash.

Huge money for volunteers

Those who volunteer in emergency response units in Long Island, New York, could get up to $50,000 to buy a home.

Long Island Homes for Heroes is a program “firmly committed to supporting those who tirelessly serve our community, often without recognition or reward,” according to its website.

We strive to fill this crucial funding void, offering an innovative solution through generous donations from our community,” LI Homes for Heroes states.

“Our goal is to provide the required ‘matching’ funds that our volunteer first responders need to access  LIHP’s financial assistance.”

LI Homes for Heroes stated: “Applicants may receive up to $26,000 in down payment assistance and $24,000 for repairs if eligible for Category I (at or below 80% of the Area Median Income) and up to $9,000 in down payment assistance and $14,000 for repairs if eligible for Category II (at or below 120% of the Area Median Income).”

Customers can claim $5,000 from data breach

Impacted customers can now apply for up to $5,000 after a data breach settlement agreement.

Those who were affected can apply for the money, which is from a $1.8 million pot.

No credit financing company Snap Financing is paying out the money after a data breach occurred between June 23 and September 8, 2022.

The company has not admitted wrongdoing but agreed to pay out a settlement.
