Delaware residents have 13 days to submit their applications for the latest round of relief checks worth up to $300.
So far, the state has issued over 782,000 direct payments of $300 for each adult resident to provide financial relief, but thousands more residents qualify for the disbursement, according to state officials.
Applicants must be Delaware residents who were 18 and older living in the state on Dec. 31, 2021, to be eligible. An applicant must also not have previously received a check.
Online applicants must provide valid Delaware residential mailing addresses, Social Security numbers, and active driver’s licenses or identification cards that were issued by Dec. 31, 2021. The portal opened at the start of the month and will close at 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 30. No additional applications will be accepted after the deadline passes, according to the state.
“If you’ve already been sent to check you can contact our office, and we can work with you to verify your identification and get the check forwarded to you, or you can pick it up in our offices,” state Secretary of Finance Rick Geisenberger said. “And if you’ve not been sent a check you can apply if you meet the qualifications to apply for a rebate.”
In April, Delaware Gov. John Carney signed legislation establishing the 2022 Delaware Relief Rebate Program. It is projected to return $230 million to taxpayers.
Payments had rolled out to residents who filed their 2020 Delaware income taxes, but the state has created a pathway for people who did not file a 2020 tax return.
