Letter: He hasn’t received stimulus check yet

I’m wondering what criteria was used to disperse COVID-19 stimulus checks.

As a senior citizen whose sole income is social security, I have yet to see my stimulus check. I have direct deposit so that isn’t the issue.

I am very aware most citizens have received their checks. I know senior couples who receive direct deposit social security payments that have received a stimulus.

I still have no clue where or if I am receiving stimulus money. It definitely isn’t because I earn too much. I am surviving without it so far.

I just hope there aren’t seniors desperately needing this money to pay this month’s bills or buy life-saving medications. But then, considering the last 3 1/2 years, this shouldn’t function correctly either.

Three Ws folks. Be a good citizen:

• Wash your hands

• Wear a mask

• Watch social distancing
