Time Is Running Out to Claim Delaware Stimulus Check: Delaware residents have less than a week to file for a rebate issued by the state government worth $300. To receive this stimulus check, residents must apply online before 11:59 pm on November 30, or miss out on the payment entirely.
Delaware Stimulus Check: How to Get It?
The stimulus package was signed by Governor Carney on April 14, 2022.
The “relief rebate” check offered one-time direct payments to all adult Delaware residents worth $400.
The intent of the bill, according to the Department of Finance, was to “promote the general welfare of Delawareans emerging from the Covid pandemic and facing higher prices at the grocery store and gas pump.”
House Bill 360 set aside the money for residents under the 2022 Delaware Relief Rebate Program in the spring, and over 780,000 Relief Rebates were issued to Delaware residents over the age of 18 by this summer.
Those who have already received the payments filed their 2020 or 2021 Delaware resident personal income tax returns or had been identified individually through State agency data.
By October 17, the Department of Finance created an avenue for all other qualifying adult Delaware residents to receive the payment, even if they did not file a 2020 Delaware tax return.
“If you’ve already been sent a check, you can contact our office, and we can work with you to verify your identification and get the check forwarded to you, or you can pick it up in our offices,” Rick Geisenberger, the Delaware Secretary of Finance, said.
“And if you’ve not been sent a check, you can apply if you meet the qualifications to apply for a rebate.”
Apply Online for Stimulus
For anybody who has not received the payment so far, and who is a Delaware resident over the age of 18, it’s still possible to receive the payment – but you must act fast.
Applications for the 2022 Relief Rebate close at 11:59 pm on November 30 and any applications made after that will not be accepted.
Delaware residents can apply online by clicking here and accessing the government’s online rebate tool.
To apply, or to see the status of your rebate, you’ll need to enter your social security number and other identifying information.
Qualifying applicants should not expect to receive payment until after the application period has closed, meaning that payments will begin to roll in after November 30.
