Residents of states like Connecticut are among the lucky Americans who will receive the New Year’s check. Governor Ned Lamont announced the Back to Work program that sends out a payment of $1,000 in stimulus checks, beginning May 30, 2021. These payments will continue through December 31, 2021.

“Many workers who were displaced during the first months of the pandemic and faced long-term unemployment are now returning and starting to rebuild,” Lamont said.

The Connecticut Governor noted that, “this one-time bonus payment will help some of those workers pay for the critical things they need to get back to work, including childcare. This is the last tool in our toolbox to maximize our state’s recovery from the pandemic.”

Among the requirements to opt for this payment that expires on December 31, 2021, is that residents who were unemployed during the pandemic in 2020 have obtained jobs. To claim the $1,000 stimulus payment, eligible individuals must complete and submit the Back to Work application electronically, as paper applications are not accepted.
