Children who are 17 or 18 years old and many college students between the ages of 19 to 23 are financially vulnerable as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and deserve stimulus checks. Being a High School Junior or Senior and being a college student should NOT preclude you from getting a stimulus check.

With schools closed, there is an increased burden on families to provide for older high school students and college students who may have returned home. In addition, many college students find themselves suddenly unemployed while still owing rent. According to the Pew Research Center, young people aged 16 to 24 will be disproportionately affected by Coronavirus layoffs, as nearly half work in service-sector jobs. 17 and 18 year old dependents, college students who have valid social security numbers, and those who are part of work-study programs deserve the $500 stimulus, if not more.
