Did Not Yet Get a State Stimulus Check? Here's How to Check

Several states have sent money to eligible residents over the past year or so to help them fight the high cost of goods and inflation. Although most states have already sent out payments, it is possible that some people may not have gotten the payment despite being eligible.

It is also possible that you aren’t aware of whether or not you were eligible for the payment. So, if you did not get a state stimulus check, it is recommended that you double-check with your state.

Did Not Get A State Stimulus Check? What To Do

Detailed below are the states that have recently concluded sending stimulus payments, as well as how residents can contact the relevant state department if they did not get a state stimulus check:

Delaware

The state sent out $300 checks in May 2022 to residents who filed 2020 taxes. If you believe you are eligible but did not get a state stimulus check, then you can visit the Delaware Department of Finance website.

Hawaii

The state started sending out $100 to $300 per family beginning in August 2022. If you believe you were eligible for the payment, then you need to check the Hawaii Department of Taxation website or call 808-587-4242.
