The deadline for the application of between $200 to $400 monthly payments comes near and more Americans are now receiving their payments.
$200 and $400 Monthly Payments
There are more monthly payments waiting for Americans this 2023 but they need to hit the deadline for application to claim the benefits. Last month, a universal basic income program in Massachusetts started to kick off its second phase.
According to a report published in The U.S. Sun, around 2,000 households received monthly payments during the first phase of the monthly payments. Likewise, hundreds of families will receive an amount between $200 to $400 in the second phase.
Moreover, the second phase is intended to help residents in Chelsea combat the energy costs and soaring inflation rate during the winter months.
