Some Senior Citizens and individuals with no children are struggling to pay their bills, and Florida Government left them out of the $450 Stimulus Check.

Recently I wrote an article talking about Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is using the same money he said that is causing a record high inflation to gifted Floridians a $450 stimulus check for each child. Since then, hundreds of Florida Residents expressed their need for financial assistance to pay their bills. Some senior citizens who receive disability and SSI have been left out of the getting stimulus payments. While individuals with no children feel Governor Ron DeSantis is discriminating against them and they added everyone should get a stimulus check.

I wanted to shine a light on all those registered voters who commented on the article and expressed their concern about Florida Government is not doing enough to help their residents without children. One Florida resident stated, “ What about all those people on disability, and SSI. We need help too. We are struggling as well”.

Governor Ron DeSantis recently announced a new strategy “to offset the costs of rising inflation.” Especially when we are approaching a new school year. He said, “the State of Florida is giving you $450 for each child in your care,” DeSantis wrote in a letter to accompany the checks. “This one-time payment can be used for anything from buying diapers to fueling up at the pump.” First Lady Casey DeSantis announced last week. They are hoping to gain support for The Pathway to Prosperity Initiative. Which at the moment is not very popular with the Floridians.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s latest estimates:

  • Over 50 million senior citizens live in the U.S., making up 16.5% of the total population.
  • Florida has the highest percentage of senior citizens (21%), followed by Maine (20%).
  • Utah has the lowest percentage of senior citizens (10.8%), followed by Alaska (11.1%).
