CALLS are increasing for a fourth stimulus check to be agreed to and sent out to millions of Americans in need.
It has been four months since the third check was signed off on, and many are asking President Joe Biden and Congress to provide additional help as the impact of the Covid pandemic continues to be felt.
It is unlikely a new stimulus check will be sent in August, but pressure is still mounting.
It comes as California officially signed off on the Golden State Stimulus II package last week, which will see more money sent to those in need.
Under the California proposal, qualifying individuals with incomes between $30,000 to $75,000 will receive a $600 stimulus check, and qualifying families with kids will get an additional $500.
Undocumented families will also be eligible to receive the cash.
The state’s Department of Finance spokesman H.D. Palmer said earlier this year the cash will start going out in early September, according to SF Gate.

IRS ERROR BLOCKS PEOPLE FROM CHILD TAX CREDIT
Some Americans may be blocked from receiving their expanded child tax credit payments due to an error on the IRS’ website.
To help eligible families track the status of their payments, the agency launched an online portal, however, users have to sign up by creating an ID.me account.
The account is essential for child tax credit (CTC) recipients to manage their upcoming payments, update their banking information, and for determining their eligibility.
However, some users have reported receiving an “error code 2001” during their setup process, which could potentially put their payments in jeopardy.
