We know that costs have been rising, and many could use additional support to pay rent, groceries, gas, and school supplies and keep up with the inflationary prices of daily necessities.

You may have heard about the Inflation Reduction Act that Congress recently passed, which will help people lower their bills. But did you know that your state government may also send you a one-time inflation relief check to help relieve some financial stress?

The following states across the country are starting to send these payments to qualifying residents: California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, South Carolina, and Virginia. How to claim these inflation relief checks:

Tip #1: Watch out for scams if you’re anticipating an inflation relief check. Don’t respond to unsolicited calls, emails, or texts asking for personal information. Additionally, here’s how to protect yourself and your household from cashing in a fake check.

Tip #2: Find out from your state government if you can receive these payments by direct deposit. It’s the fastest and more secure way to receive money.

Eligible residents can expect to receive their inflation relief check through direct deposit or a physical check. Refer to this article to see how you might receive this one-time payment in your state.

SaverLife applauds the state governments that have stepped forward to put their residents first. These payments will put more money in the pockets of hard-working Americans. We call upon the remaining 34 states nationwide to do the same.
