Up to 100,000 Americans to get automatic stimulus checks in the next month – see if you’re eligible to get $1,100
UP to 100,00 more Californians are set to get stimulus checks before the end of February.
Under California’s Golden State Stimulus II initiative, eligible residents are getting payments worth between $600 and $1,100.
For months, California has been sending out stimulus payments in order by zip code.
The last batch payments by zip code were issued earlier this week.
However, the state’s public fairs office estimates that tens of thousands of more payments will be sent out.
“Most of the resulting GSS II payments – estimated at between 50,000 and 100,000 – are expected to be mailed this month or next," it told the Sun.
“These payments will be issued automatically and there is no action required by the taxpayers who will receive them.”
This group includes tax returns that require “additional processing to ensure eligibility,” the state’s public affairs office added.
Meanwhile, some might need to take action.

This will be the case for those who did not have one but applied for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) by the October 15 deadline.
That group will need to file their state returns by February 12 to be eligible for a GSS check.
According to the public affairs office, the state has issued more than 8.2million stimulus payments worth more than $5.9billion.
Furthermore, an estimated 98% to 99% of stimulus checks have been issued.
