Get the $3,600 Child Tax Credit and $1,400 Stimulus Payment

Overview

Get the $3,600 Child Tax Credit and $1,400 Stimulus Payment

Sign up by November 15th to get the Child Tax Credit (up to $3600) and third stimulus payment ($1400) this year 

Dear Connecticut Resident, 

If you did not get the Child Tax Credit or the third stimulus payment benefit, it's not too late!  

Apply by November 15 and you could get up to $3,600 per child with Child Tax Credit funds and/or the 3rd stimulus payment of $1,400 for yourself and each child.  

You can be eligible even if you have low income, no income, or don't usually file taxes.  You can get this money even if you have never filed taxes or have not filed in the last few years. You do not need to have a job or income to claim this credit.  

If you had a baby in 2020 or 2021, you should apply.  If you got monthly money from the IRS in 2021 for your kids ($250 or $300 per month per child), you still need to sign up again this year to get the rest of your money. 

This money does not count for DSS benefits like SNAP, HUSKY, or TFA.

Even if you do not have a Social Security Number, you can get payments for your children who have Social Security Numbers. Under current law, receiving the Child Tax Credit or other tax credits will not affect your immigration status, ability to get a Green Card, or future immigration plans. 

How do I get these benefits? 

It is easy to apply!  Apply with a simple form in 15 minutes or less.  

Go to https://getctc.org/ctdss before November 15th to sign up
