HOUSEHOLDS will start getting checks worth between $400 and $1,000 in just weeks under a $30million Premium Pay program.

Connecticut launched its Premium Pay program back for essential workers in 2022.

The Connecticut State Legislature overwhelmingly voted to increase the state’s Premium Pay Program by $75million as part of House Bill 6001, which Governor Ned Lamont signed into law on November 29.

Initially, the bonus pay was originally worth $1,000 for full-timers and $400 for part-timers, but the state ran into an application influx issue and had to make modifications.

Under the original plan, workers making less than $100,000 would receive $1,000 checks, with those making between $100,000 and $149,999 receiving smaller amounts.

The deadline to apply for the cash back was October 1.

However, the state changed the policy so that only full-time workers who made less than $50,000 will qualify for the full $1,000.

That means those making between $50,000 and $150,000 are eligible for between $100 and $800.

The program applies only to private-sector workers, leaving out anyone working for a federal, state, or municipal government agency.

Specifically, to qualify, you must not have been able to work from home and employed between March 10, 2020 and May 7, 2022.

The state’s Comptroller’s Office told The U.S. Sun that the Premium Pay bonuses will start “going out in batches early next month.”


Two other states have secured funds for their own bonus payment programs.

Since October 2022, the Maryland State Department of Education has been sending out payments worth up to $13,500 to childcare providers, and payments continue to go out this year.

The exact amount will depend on the quality rating earned and the capacity of the childcare center.

To be eligible for a check, you must have been granted a “first-time quality rating” on or following July 1 in addition to participating in Maryland EXCELS early education program.

The bonus awards will continue to go out through June 30, 2023.

Likewise, in Rochester, New York, teachers are set to get bonuses thanks to the Rochester Teachers Association in New York.

The association voted to approve a three-year contract.

During each of the first two years of the contract, there will be a retention bonus of $1,500 paid out. 

That allows for a maximum of $3,000.

The city of Memphis, Tennessee is also offering bonus payments – up to $15,000 to recruit police officers and firefighters.
