If you’re worried that President Donald Trump ishas jeopardized conversations – including a for as much as – there is hope. Negotiators from the White House and Democrats have indicated that they could this week paving the way for discussions on who would qualify for the next direct relief payment to continue.
“There is a deal to be made if the Democrats are reasonable and want to compromise,” Finance Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Monday. And both sides say they have already agreed on parts of a new bill. “We have agreed on more direct payments, which we sent last time,” Mnuchin added, although he did not provide details on who would qualify under a new payment.
Here’s howcompare. Continue reading to see if you may be eligible for the eligibility requirements that are likely to be included in a final bill (again, if there is one). This story is updated frequently.
Who would get a stimulus check if the HEALS Act was passed?
There may be further discussions about stimulus relief in the coming week. If the HEALS Act became law, it would largely replicate the payment entitlement set out in the previous CARES law, with a new contribution for dependence:
- An individual living in the United States with an adjusted gross income, or AGI, of less than $ 99,000
- A head of a household earning under $ 146,500
- A couple files together without children and earns less than $ 198,000
- One depending on any age
Under the CARES Act, the break to get a $ 500 addiction check was age 16 and younger; students under the age of 24 were not eligible for a check. The Republican proposal would exclude people in prison and people who recently died from qualifying for a check. The bill would also prohibit creditors and banks from using the payment to pay off debts.
Hero law’s vision of stimulus control justification
The Democratic proposal offers broader eligibility parameters in the Hero Act, which was put forward by the House of Representatives on 15 May. Although the Senate Republicans and the President oppose the plan, we can look to this bill to see the democratic position in the upper limits of who can qualify in a broad proposal:
- Individuals who earned less than $ 99,000 according to the adjusted gross income from their taxes for 2018 or 2019 (depending on what was last filed)
- Students, family members over 17, disabled relatives and taxpayers’ parents
- Families of up to five people, for a hat of 6,000 dollars per family
- SSDI receiver
- Individuals who are not U.S. citizens but file tax returns, pay taxes, and otherwise comply with federal tax laws using an individual taxpayer’s identity number instead of a social security number
Here’s who did not get a stimulus check with the CARES Act
Under the CARES Act, which became law in March, these groups are excluded from receiving the first payment:
- Individual taxpayers with one over $ 99,000
- Managers for households with an AGI over $ 136,500
- Married couple with an AGI over $ 198,000
- Children over 16 and students under 24
- Non-resident aliens as defined by the US Government
When will Congress reach an agreement on eligibility requirements?
Right now, the timeline for further discussions remains in the air. While talks between Republican and Democratic negotiators on the new stimulus package stalled last week, the two sides have signaled their willingness to enter into negotiations. If negotiations resume and they reach an agreement soon, the House of Representatives and the Senate could still vote on the bill this week or next week.
As such, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have pushed back the beginning of their House’s August breaks. Once the parties have reached an agreement, the incentive proposal will not take effect until the president signs it into law.
And even if we do not know for sure until the two sides come together on the next stimulus package, we have a good idea, if a new bill passes.
