WASHINGTON — The largest economic relief bill in U.S. history was signed into law recently, paving the way for $2.2 trillion in aid for individuals, businesses, workers and health care systems engulfed bythe coronavirus pandemic.
The package provides one-time direct payments to Americans of $1,200 per individual adult and $2,400 for married couples, plus an additional $500 for each eligible child.
The full amount will be available for individuals making less than $75,000 and couples making less than $150,000 annually. The amount a person receives will phase out if they earn more, ending for those earning more than $99,000 annually.
