Sherriel Weithers started this petition to Governor Gavin Newsom

Governor Gavin Newsom announced a one time $600​ - $1100 California Golden State Stimulus Check I and II for more than 4.5M tax payers that have filed their 2020 taxes by October 15, 2021.

California has a $76 billion dollar surplus thanks to taxes paid by Californians who benefited the most during the 2020 pandemic, and will have another $31 billion in 2022, thanks to California's tax paying residents in 2021.  

Governor Newsom stated that the extra money should help California residents who suffered financial difficulties during the pandemic to get back on their feet. So why have (SSDI) and (SSA) California recipients been left out of these stimulus packages who really need and could use this money the most with California being one of the richest states in the nation.

Social Security Disability Insurance and Social Security Admin., recipients are in desperate need of this payment because many only survive on their monthly benefits, and the cost of this pandemic has put an additional strain on these beneficiaries.  (SSDI) and (SSA) recipients should not have been left out from any State Stimulus Plan and the 5.9% COLA raise in 2022, is simply not enough.

GSS I was approved February, 2021:

  1. For California residents who are low-income or non-citizens that did not receive any Federal Stimulus money and recipients of Cal EITC who made 0 - $30,000 and ITIN filers who made $0 - $75,000. 
  2. Filed their 2020 tax returns by October 15, 2021.
  3. Lived within the state of California for at least half of the 2020 tax year.
  4. A California resident on the date payment is issued and not eligible to be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer in order to qualify. 


GSS II was approved July, 2021:

  1. For California residents with a adjusted gross income of $1 - $75,000 for the 2020 tax year.
  2. Filed their 2020 tax returns by October 15, 2021.
  3. Lived within the state of California for at least half of the 2020 tax year.
  4. A California resident on the date payment is issued and not eligible to be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer in order to qualify. 

Social Security Disability Insurance and Social Security Admin., recipients do not automatically qualify for the Golden State Stimulus payment because most do not file federal or state taxes which is needed in order to quality for California's State Stimulus I and II, even though (SSDI) recipients have paid taxes into the Social Security system for a least seven years in order to even be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance.

(SSDI) and (SSA) recipients were not left out of:

  1.  Cares Act of 2020, $1200 
  2.  Consolidated Appropriation Act of 2021, $600
  3.  American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, $1400

Each and everyone of us went through these pandemic variant's and continues to go through them.  Please sign this petition to continue helping me in helping all of us by letting Governor Gavin Newsom know that Holiday's are here, and that (SSDI) and (SSA) recipients should benefit and not be left out or excluded from receiving a $600 - $1100 Golden State Stimulus payment I or II.
