$350 Inflation relief checks: Who is eligible for this support?

Inflation relief checks up to $350 from a one-time payment that was given to low-income people in late September remain unclaimed in Georgia.

Due to issues with client IDs or inability to access cards, there are still $235 million in unclaimed payments out of the $1 billion distributed.

Georgia Financial Assitance

The financial assistance program was unveiled on September 20 by Brian Kemp’s office, the governor of Georgia. To reach 3 million individuals, it was meant to be distributed. According to Kemp’s office, the financial assistance distributions are meant to help people cope with the pandemic’s aftereffects and the quickly escalating inflation.

According to a statement from Kemp’s office in August of last year, “this assistance will help some of Georgia’s most vulnerable citizens cope with the continued negative economic impact of the Covid-19 public health emergency and 40-year-high inflation caused by disastrous policies that were implemented by the Biden administration.”

Who Is Eligible For Inflation Relief Checks?

Inflation-Dollars-Stimulus Check-Georgia-US News
Cash assistance checks up to $350 from a one-time payment that was given to low-income people in late September remain unclaimed in Georgia.

Candidates must have been receiving Medicaid, PeachCare for Kids, SNAP, or TANF services as of July 31, 2022, in order to be eligible.

Anyone enrolling in more than one of these programs will only be qualified for a single financial assistance payment, according to the Georgia Department of Human Resources.

If you’re unsure whether you’re eligible, go to gateway.ga.gov and select the “Check My Benefits – Case Selection” tab. Your eligibility, as well as the eligibility of any other family members, will be stated.

In the meantime, Gov. Brian Kemp provided a sneak peek at some of the things in his proposed budget, including plans for some state employees to receive pay hikes, tax refunds, and property tax relief payments.

Kemp mentioned the $2,000 raises during his remarks at the beginning of his term. He said they apply to teachers, pre-K teachers, and trained staff who work with children in kindergarten through grade 12.

Kemp claimed that excessive turnover made difficult positions tougher to do and that his strategy for staffing state departments is to offer competitive salaries.

Kemp stated during his inaugural address that we must be willing to be competitive with state salaries if we want to keep good people in positions that are crucial to the safety and well-being of our children, our communities, and our state as a whole. These positions range from the classroom to the state patrol.

Kemp also stated that he intended to suggest that Georgian residents receive $1 billion in income tax refunds. Additionally, he would advocate for a one-time payment of $1.1 billion for homeowner property tax relief.

Georgia had a $6.6 billion surplus at the end of the 2022 fiscal year. The state set aside $1.1 billion for refunds last year, with $500 going to households with two earners, $250 going to unmarried adults with dependents, and $250 going to single people.

For homeowners, a reduction in property taxes might be worth $500 a year.On Friday, the governor’s office intends to formally present Kemp’s budget proposal.
