Nearly 20 states approved stimulus payments in one form or another in 2022, and residents in a dozen of them are still waiting for their money. If you live in one of the following 12 states and you haven’t yet received a payment you qualified for, don’t panic — the check might be in the mail.

Take a look below for more payment information from these state governments.


Most eligible Californians received Middle-Class Tax Refund payments of up to $1,050 in October, but some direct deposits will be made through Nov. 14. Debit card payments will be sent out through Jan. 14, 2023.


In an effort to prevent fraud, Colorado sent physical checks of up to $750 or $1,500 for joint fillers, most of which were received by Sept. 30. But those who filed for a tax extension will receive checks through Jan. 31, 2023.


Eligible residents who did not already receive a Delaware Relief Rebate payment can apply for the $300 stimulus during a 30-day application period that ends Nov. 30.

Illinois is issuing two rebates, one for $50 and another for $300. The state said that the first checks went out on Sept. 12 “and will take several months to be issued.”


Indiana authorized two tax refunds — one for $125 and another for $200 for single filers. They have different eligibility requirements, and those who qualified for both have already received their payments. Those who qualified only for the $200 refund, on the other hand, won’t receive a payment and must claim it as a tax credit when they file their taxes next year.
