Local News

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — More than 1 million Californians who qualify for a Golden State Stimulus check but haven’t received one yet could see a payment as soon as this week.

A total of 1.15 million payments valued at $857 million will be sent out in this latest batch, according to the California Franchise Tax Board.

For those anticipating a payment, officials note that it can take several days for direct deposits to show up in bank accounts, and up to three weeks to receive a check by mail after it’s sent.

Most people whose address is in a Kern County ZIP Code should get their payment between now and November 19.

We asked: What do you plan to do with your stimulus check? Spend it? Save it? Or something else?
