The social security stimulus package is on its way. The stimulus comes in the form of $250 checks for social security recipients. CNN reports:
An estimated 50 million Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients will receive their one-time $250 economic stimulus check starting in early May — several weeks ahead of schedule, Vice President Joe Biden announced Thursday.
Vice President Biden says the checks will “make a big difference” for older Americans and those with disabilities.
Vice President Biden says the checks will “make a big difference” for older Americans and those with disabilities. The $250 checks “will make a big difference in the lives of older Americans and people with disabilities — many of whom have been hit especially hard by the economic crisis that has swept across the country,” Biden said in a written statement.
“Big difference” is an overstatement, but it’s a nice gesture.
