California Governor Gavin Newsom and legislative leaders announced a spending deal earlier this year to help some of the people hardest hit by the pandemic. The plan includes several rounds of stimulus checks, some of which are expected to arrive on bank accounts soon.
Initially, the plan was to help low income families. In May, Newsom announced that the plan would be extended to middle-income families.

When can I expect to see the money?
The last round of payments was due to start in September.
Most direct deposit stimulus payments will be issued between September 1 and October 31. If your tax return was filed after September 1, expect payment about 45 days after your return is processed.
For paper checks, payments will be made by the last three digits of the zip code of your 2020 tax return. If your tax return is processed on or after the date of your zip code payment, allow up to 60 days after the processing of your declaration.
How much money will I receive?
You can use the table below to determine your amount. Expect a payout of $ 500 or more.
