Stimulus Payment For SSI, SSDI, VA & Seniors | $1,400 Stimulus Check 2022 | Credit Viral
The third round of stimulus checks saw more than 169 million payments sent out to eligible Americans, and some are pushing for a fourth as inflation continues to bite. The threat of the more contagious covid-19 variant, Omicron, has spooked the markets and created new wave of illness. In early January the United States surpassed one million cases in a single day for the first time, and then went on to beat that record in each of the three following days. With individuals forced to self-isolate after a positive test there is concern that millions could have their livelihood threatened. The non-partisan advocacy group Senior Citizens League (TSCL) has called on Congress to send those receiving Social Security additional stimulus money. In a letter, TSCL Chairman Rick Delaney implored leaders in Congress to approve a one-off $1,400 Social Security stimulus payment for seniors. Researchers with the TSCL have found that costs for seniors have outpaced COLA increase. While over the last twenty-one years, ”COLAs have raised Social Security benefits by 55 percent,” the costs for housing and healthcare increased 118 and 145 percent, respectively.
