4th stimulus check 2022 update – New payments worth $1,100 spent TODAY after automatic $5,200 boosts sent

Stimulus payments worth between $600 and $1,100 will be issued tomorrow — and here are the zip codes that will get the relief money.

Californians expect their last round of incentive payments, with checks sent on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.

As part of California pandemic stimulus program, some 180,000 payments worth $127 million were sent at the end of December and are expected to arrive during the month of January.

It comes after the Navajo council voted last month to steer stimulus checks worth up to $2,000 for eligible adults and $600 for each child, resulting in $5,200 for a family of two adults and two children.

The vote took place Dec. 29, with Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez approving the bill that grants more than 345,000 hardship checks to tribesmen.

The money comes from $557 million in Navajo Nation Fiscal Recovery funds (NNRF).
