Americans have just two days left to request monthly payments of $1,000 for two years
MANY Americans are eligible for Universal Basic Income payments totaling $18,000 over the next two years.
In some places, residents only have a few days left to request the installment series.
There are 24 cities and states in the United States that offer Universal Basic Income Style programs.
UBI payments are generally recurring federal government payments designed to stimulate the economy.
UBI payments can be paid in several different amounts, on several different schedules.
Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang suggested national UBI payments during his candidacy.
Yang wanted to give money to low-income Americans every year.
Stimulus payments took the form of checks or direct deposits for those who qualified.
Now, more stimulus payments are unlikely to come.
However, in their place, several cities and states have launched their own UBI programs.
While application deadlines have passed in several places, residents of some states still have the opportunity to apply if they act now.
In Baltimore, Marylandapplications for monthly installments of $1,000 opened on May 2 and will close on May 9.
The full list of program eligibility requirements is below:
- Be between 18 and 24 years old
- Be either the biological or adoptive parents or guardians
- Parents must have full or partial custody responsibilities
- Income must be at or below 300% of the federal poverty level, which is based on household size
