( CBS San Francisco ) — A possible fourth stimulus check remains a popular topic with the third round of economic relief payments almost concluded. About 164 million payments of up to $1,400 per person have been issued since the third stimulus package passed in mid-March. Another 1.1 million paper checks and EIP cards should go out this week. And plus-up payments, for those who didn’t receive what they were due, have also been going out. Together they add up to most of the $422 billion allotted in President Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan. These relief payments are part of a broad effort to cushion COVID’s economic impact on households and support the economy while the pandemic recovery continues. The stimulus package also extends unemployment benefits, enhances the child tax credit, and much more. The recent round of checks follows the $1,200 CARES Act payments at the pandemic’s outset and the $600 payments from January.
