THOUSANDS of Connecticut frontline workers may be in line for payments of up to $1,000 as part of their new $30million Premium Pay program.

Full-time employees may receive $1,000 while part-time employees would collect $500.

To qualify for benefits, Connecticut residents must have been employed as essential workers from March 10, 2020 to May 7, 2022.

The program was established by the Connecticut Legislature to provide financial relief to essential workers that were employed during the pandemic.

The Connecticut Office of the State Comptroller will oversee the program with help from the Public Consulting Group for processing claims and payments.

The comptroller said that the money will be distributed evenly and not on a first come first serve basis.

Natalie Braswell with the CT Office of the State Comptroller told Fox 61, "we want to make sure that everyone is getting the same treatment and payments are going out and adjusted as needed."

The site also reported that the program had a soft launch last week and with nearly 30,000 showing interest.

Do you qualify?

To qualify, individuals must be deemed essential and fall under specific income limits.

The program defines an "Essential Worker" as an individual working an essential job in Connecticut who was not given the option to work remotely during the pandemic.

For those making less than $100,000 a year, workers will receive $1,000.

All essential workers must make below $149,999 a year or less.

Employees working for a federal, state, or municipal government agency will not be eligible.

The deadline to apply is October 1 and checks will be mailed within 60 days.

Other states sending checks

Virginia taxpayers who owed state income taxes in 2021 may get some of that cash back - with the exception of any credits.

Credits include taxes paid to another state, deductions, or subtractions.

Individuals filing will receive up to $250 while those filing jointly may collect up to $500.

Additionally, Rhode Island residents are in line to receive direct payment worth up to $750.

Nearly 115,000 families will be able to receive the $250 child tax credit.

There is a maximum of three children, so the most a family could receive is $750.

While the deadline for Coloradans to file a return and receive refunds has passed, they can still claim the money.

The rebates are worth $750 for individuals, while the amount for joint filers is $1,500.

This applies as long as you file an extension by October 17.

However, those who filed their taxes by June 30 are in line to get their refund checks in late August.

The Sun reveals Direct payments worth up to $1,700 going out soon – how to secure yours.

Plus, $325 August tax rebate for more than a million Americans to be mailed in 48 HOURS – will you get a direct payment?
