New check for over $5,000! A US state is offering remote workers a one-time stimulus check worth up to $7,500 if they move there by this February, The Sun reported.
But who is giving out this generous payment? This is a new check in Vermont, the new Remote Worker Grant is for people who work for an out-of-state employer. To be eligible they must become Vermont residents as of February 1, 2022.
How does the new Vermont check work?
The program is valid for people from anywhere in the country who decide to relocate to Vermont to work remotely and has been offering rebate grants of up to $7,500 to workers nationwide who moved to Vermont beginning July 1, 2021.
To be eligible you must be located in Vermont as of February 1, 2022. You also must be working full-time, remotely for an out-of-state employer in an office, home, or shared workspace located within Vermont. The applicant’s salary must be equal to or higher than the state minimum wage.
Money just for remote workers?
The answer is no. The state is offering other stimulus as part of its Relocating Worker grant that is similar to assistance for remote workers. Through this incentive, qualified workers can also receive up to $ 7,500.
This program incentivizes workers to move into the state to work for local employers. Like the remote worker grant, individuals must be subject to Vermont income tax and earn the state minimum wage, which is currently $13.39 an hour.
What is needed to apply for the Vermont grants?
These new programs are aimed at attracting new residents to the state to grow their workforce and support employers facing the challenges of finding enough workers.
Applicants should have certain information and documents available to upload with their application. These include the employer’s name and address, the employee’s address, the name of the employer’s representative (must be the hiring manager), an email address, and employer representative phone number.
What documents are needed?
Applicants must provide an itemized invoice and proof of payment as proof of qualified relocation expenses incurred. However, expenses not yet paid are not eligible for reimbursement.
Similarly, applications and supporting documentation must provide evidence showing applicants’ relocation from out of state, such as a valid Vermont-issued driver’s license, copy of their paycheck stub with Vermont information, and a Vermont home purchase or lease agreement, or a state utility bill with a new service address.

What do you do after moving to Vermont?
Once you have relocated to Vermont and submitted the necessary documentation to apply for the $7,500 check, you will need to provide the required documents to receive reimbursement for some qualified relocation expenses.
What are these relocation expenses? According to the state, qualified expenses include closing costs for a primary residence or lease deposit and one month’s rent, hiring a moving company, rental of moving equipment, transportation, and the cost of moving supplies.
Other states continue to send aid
In California the final round of checks known as the Golden State Stimulus II began to be sent on December 27. However, paper checks continue to be sent by mail according to the last three digits of their ZIP code and will continue to be shipped until January 11, 2022.
In the same state, the local government of the City of Los Angeles has also launched a guaranteed basic income program that will provide $1,000 a month to around 3,000 families for 12 months. At the moment it is unknown who will be the beneficiaries since the city indicated that those selected to participate will be notified later this month.
Still more aid is coming to some
The aid is also far from over for some people in Chicago. Mayor Lori Lightfoot has approved funding for a guaranteed basic income pilot program. In a statement, Lightfoot said that $35 million will be invested in family assistance programs, which are intended to provide payments of $500 to 5,000 low-income families.
Although they have not given an exact date of when this payment will be issued, it is expected that the money will begin to be sent this year. On the other hand, New Orleans teens began receiving $350 as of December as part of Louisiana’s financial education program and these payments will be sent monthly for 10 months.
