U Of M Launches Website To Help Answer Questions About Stimulus Checks

The University of Michigan has launched a new website to help people get their stimulus checks faster.

The site contains information about determining eligibility for the Federal 2020 Coronavirus Stimulus Payment.

It also has advice on how to file a tax return, set up a bank account, and other things people can do to ensure they get their payment sooner than later.

The director of Poverty Solutions at U of M, Luke Shaefer, says the stimulus can be an effective way to help many of the people struggling during the current crisis, especially those with the most need.

“One of the things that’s really unusual about it is how broad the eligibility is.  It’s officially a tax credit, but you actually don’t have to have had any earnings in the last two years to get it.  But you do have to do things,” Shaefer says.

More information about the website can be found here.
