$4,000 Direct Payment: Only A Few Days Left To Claim

Only a few days remain for the thousands of individuals in the United States who are eligible to receive a direct payment of up to $4,000 

The Excluded New Jerseyans Fund is providing financial assistance to residents of the Garden State who were not eligible to receive stimulus checks.

The direct payments to individuals are valued at $2,000, while those to families are valued at $4,000.

To start the programme, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy put aside $40 million, which was followed by additional $20 million from the American Rescue Act.

According to the New Jersey Monitor, approximately 17,000 applications have failed to submit the required papers, citing a spokesman for the Department of Human Services (DHS).

Who Is Eligible?

Undocumented individuals, people recently incarcerated, and anyone who did not receive both federal stimulus funds and pandemic unemployment assistance were eligible to apply.
