California will soon be sending out $600 one-time stimulus payments to millions of low-income California households, with extra help for undocumented workers left out of the federal government’s pandemic relief. The Golden State Stimulus is part of a $7.6 billion economic stimulus package that Gov. Gavin Newsom signed today that also includes billions in relief for small businesses.
“Those who have been left behind in that federal stimulus, California’s not going to leave you behind,” Newsom said during the signing ceremony in Sacramento with legislative leaders.
An estimated 5.7 million checks will go to low-income Californians, including families with children enrolled in CalWORKS, as well as elderly, blind and disabled recipients of Supplemental Security Income or the state’s Cash Assistance Program for Immigrants.
“Lower-wage workers have often been on the front lines in service jobs with high levels of exposure,” said Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon. “This will give them an additional tax rebate to help them make ends meet.”
The $3.8 billion stimulus payment program is the result of weeks of negotiations between lawmakers, after Newsom first proposed a narrower version of the stimulus in January.
Here’s who will receive a Golden State Stimulus check:

Do receipents of SSDI get the stimulis check?
Will the working people that don’t meet the requirement to file (IE: under 12k) be left in the dark?
Why is it listed that some undocumented workers who get $30,000 to $75,000 may be able to qualify, but not our low income workers? That’s not right! We should be sending that extra money to our own.
I have make 200.00 a month and get Calfresh will I get the $600 stimulus?
What happened to the $2,000 everyone was supposed to get? That they’ve been promising for months now. The original agreement was with this stimulus money none of it was to go to the illegals, like last time. That was another reason President Trump signed the agreement prior to leaving. But as always Demorats lied again as always. I’m sure their pockets will lined with some of it. Why would an illegal making $30,000 – $75,000 a year deserve a penny of that money? That’s why there’s nothing for ur American people because you’re giving it all away to people who shouldn’t be getting it. The elderly, disabled that worked their whole lives get crap but an illegal comes here and they get everything. Even though it’s our tax money you give it to them. Why don’t you give up some of those billions of illegal dollars you pocketed from China, Iran, Russia and God only knows how many others. You damn traitor, thief you should be in prison for treason. You’ll never even up sending out those checks. They’ve already gone from $2,000 to $600. Don’t any of you Demorats worry or you republicans that are traitors. God is seeing everything your doing. They say he forgives us for our sins but not when you know what you’re doing and you keep doing it. Doesn’t matter if you believe or not. Little by little things are going to start going bad for you. Then all of a sudden as they get worse you and your family will realize God is already starting. He always starts with the little stuff giving you a chance to make good on what you did and when you don’t things just continue to get worse. Eventually you will realize he wasn’t playing around God gave chances and you were to hurting others . But you will all of a sudden realize what’s happening. It will be God stepping in he doesn’t always wait until you get to the other side. People like you, Pelosi, Schumer, Newsom and the others you”ll be going down stairs to the hot side. I hold you like hot weather!!!🤣😈👿
