This is The Last Week To Claim Your Relief Check In Some States— Here’s How To Get Your Money

Inflation is out of control and although the Fed is reportedly taking measures to control it over the long term, people are feeling the pain now.

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report that the Federal Reserve’s latest U.S. inflation report last week looked dismal. Living costs are likely to continue to rise to help bolster the value of the USD.

“The worst is yet to come,” said International Monetary Fund Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva at a Thursday IMF and the World Bank briefing as reported by WSJ. “Across many economies, recession risks are rising.”

To alleviate the pressure, quite a few states are currently rolling out payments or will start distributing rebates soon. In most cases, payments hinge on whether residents have filed their 2021 tax returns. According to CNBC some taxpayers have already started receiving checks.
