Capps Says ‘Recovery Rebates’ Coming Monday

$600-$1,200 economic stimulus payments intended to offset rising gas and grocery prices.

Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, announced Friday that the Treasury Department would be distributing "Recovery Rebates" ahead of schedule. The payments — $600 per individual and $1,200 per married couple, plus $300 per child — were authorized by the Economic Stimulus package Congress passed earlier this year.

People who use direct deposit will start receiving the rebates Monday. The first paper checks will be mailed May 9.

“This is good news for Americans struggling under the burden of rising gas and grocery costs, the high price of health care, and the downturn in the job and housing markets,” Capps said in a statement.

“Getting these Recovery Rebates into the hands of those who need them as soon as possible is critical to easing the strain on these families and to helping our declining economy."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
