City & Philadelphia Legal Assistance Hosting Info Session on Unclaimed Stimulus Checks - Oct 30th



Up to 64,000 Philadelphia households are eligible but have not yet received their federal stimulus payment through the CARES Act passed in late March. That adds up to an estimated $77 million in relief unclaimed by Philadelphia families. While most eligible taxpayers automatically received their stimulus payment this summer, some did not receive it because they need to complete a specific form for individuals not required to file taxes. Eligible Philadelphians who have not yet received their stimulus payment can submit their information by November 21, 2020 through the non-filers tool.


On Friday, October 30th at 12 noon the City of Philadelphia and Philadelphia Legal Assistance will host a virtual information session for individuals and community organizations on how to help residents claim their $1,200 federal stimulus payment by the November 21 deadline.


Information Session Speakers:

· Mitch Little, Executive Director, Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity, City of Philadelphia

· Anthony Marqusee, Paralegal, Low Income Tax Unit, Philadelphia Legal Assistance
