A petition calling for a fourth stimulus payment for Social Security recipients is still gaining pace as we approach 2022.
The petition asks Congress to deliver another $1,400 check to Social Security recipients on a fixed income.
A letter was sent to the government explaining how the 5.9% COLA raise was insufficient after inflation.
Fourth Stimulus Check: Will There Be a Fourth Stimulus Check?
According to the Sun, the increase not only did not help with inflation, but it also put many people over their income restrictions for services like Medicare.
A petition on Change.org with over 3 million signatures is also attempting to persuade Congress to send another check.
This one asks for $2,000 for adults and $1,000 for children for the rest of the pandemic.
70,000 Checks Totaling $1,200 Are Being Issued.
Will There Be a Fourth Stimulus Check?
It does not appear to be the case.
The Build Back Better bill has provisions to assist the elderly, but none of them include a stimulus check.
The bill was supposed to be passed by the end of 2021, however, it has yet to do so in 2022.
