Several states are considering sending stimulus payments this month to help residents offset the impacts of rising inflation, fuel prices and COVID-19. The list of states sending stimulus checks in May includes California, Delaware and Indiana. Apart from these three states, the city of Chicago could offer prepaid gas cards and transit cards.

States Sending Stimulus Checks In May

Delaware is planning to send a tax rebate by the end of this month. Eligible individual filers will get a tax rebate of $300, while couples who file jointly will get a tax rebate of $600. The rebate will go to residents who have filed a personal income tax return for 2020. Moreover, the rebate will also go to those whose earnings were not enough to file taxes in 2020.

Delaware’s Department of Finance (DOF) is expected to send the first round of payments at the end of May. The DOF also plans to make further rounds of payments later.

“The program was developed in consideration of the economic hardships experienced by Delaware families as they emerge from a two-year pandemic and face generationally high grocery and energy costs,” the program’s website says.

Indiana is also considering sending tax rebates to eligible residents this month. Eligible individuals who file taxes will get a payment of $125, while married couples will get a payment of $250. Those who filed their 2020 taxes before January 3, 2022 will be eligible for the payment.

“The 2021 Automatic Taxpayer Refund will be issued automatically to all individuals who filed an Indiana resident return for the 2020 tax year and whose return had a postmark date of Jan. 3, 2022, or earlier,” the program’s website says.

Initially, the payment will go to those who provided their banking information with their 2021 tax returns. Others will get a paper check, but those are not expected to be issued until July or August.

The list of states sending stimulus checks in May also includes California. The Golden State started sending the latest round of checks from April 22. However, the majority of the stimulus checks will arrive this month, i.e. May.

Some Could Get Prepaid Cards

Apart from the states sending stimulus checks in May, the city of Chicago will be sending prepaid gas and transport cards to eligible residents this month. The authorities will issue about 50,000 prepaid gas cards of $150, and about 100,000 prepaid transport cards of $50 each.

To be eligible for the prepaid card, applicants must be over the age of 18, be a Chicago resident, and have a household income at 100% or less of the area median income. For more information on eligibility, visit the program’s website.

These prepaid cards are part of Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago Moves program. As per the program’s website, the cards will be allotted through a lottery starting in the second week of May.
