Maryland isn’t the only state issuing stimulus checks to its residents. In California, millions of Californians will receive up to $ 1,100 before this October 31, as part of what will be the last round of financial aid from the Golden State Stimulus II, as explained by the California Franchise Tax Board (CFTB).

In this latest round of payments, the CFTB will deliver some 4.5 million checks worth between $ 600 and $ 1,100 each, which could reach the beneficiaries through direct deposits or paper checks, as explained to The Sun. The process has been delayed due to limitations on releasing all payments at the same time and other details such as “the state’s ability to validate eligibility, guard against fraud, and issue GSS II payments concurrently with other mandatory disbursements.”
