4th Stimulus Payment - It's possible to a get a 4th and even more as politicians tell President Biden - "One more check is not enough".

Recurring Direct Payments - Just like the previous 3 stimulus payments, the plan would be to help Americans put food on the table and have a place to live. The difference is that these would be pre-arranged recurring payments that wouldn't be held up by politics. Once agreed upon they would be released according to a schedule of dates.

Continued Unemployment Insurance - For those on unemployment you know that you receive your state unemployment insurance and the government enhances that with more funds. During much of 2020, unemployment insurance was enhanced by $600 a week. Continued unemployment insurance would be the same but agreed upon ahead of time for the long term so that nobody has to go without while waiting for politicians to stop fighting.

Here is the latest on the status of the most recent stimulus payment of $1400 to most Americans. According to CBS, the IRS said Social Security recipients and others that don't normally file a tax return can expect to receive their $1,400 stimulus payments: April 7.
