Golden State Stimulus II Payments Coming Soon


California will soon be sending out a second round of stimulus payments—known as Golden State Stimulus (GSS) II—to eligible individual and families. These payments are included as part of California’s annual state budget plan, Senate Bill 139 (SB 139), which was recently signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom. In May, the California Credit Union League notified credit unions of these upcoming payments. Click here for those details.

Disbursement of GSS II payments is anticipated to begin in late August.Credit unions should immediately prepare to begin receiving these payments and make any processing or system preparations necessary. Credit unions should further note that GSS II payments are in addition to Golden State Stimulus Payments (GSSP) that were announced in March 2021.
