The Department of the Treasury yesterday disbursed $ 99,378,823 of the Economic Impact Payment to some 75,874 families.
“In these payments, there are about 60,000 checks that are being processed for mailing and the rest of the families will receive it through direct deposit, "said the Secretary of the Treasury, Francisco Parés.
So far, $ 2,111 million have been disbursed for 1.4 million families of federal aid approved in the CARES Law
" We will continue with the distribution plan until the month of December, "he indicated.
Payments to self-employed
Other payments that continue to be channeled are those destined to self-employed who managed to qualify for aid of $ 500 and $ 1,000, after the relaxation of the requirements, recently approved.
“The relaxation of the parameters has allowed the incentive to reach another group of self-employed. Within days of enabling the link for new eligible applicants to apply, we disbursed $ 12,032,500 to an additional 24,065 self-employed. Approximately $ 240 million has been disbursed in these grants, "he pointed out.
The secretary recalled that the link to request the grants for self-employed workers who did not benefit in the first stage, will be available for a certain time and the workers must verify in your SURI accounts and confirm, no later than June 30, 2020, the information of the bank account where said incentive will be deposited.
