The president-elect’s $1.9 trillion economic relief plan calls for yet another round of direct payments to help people pay bills and support their families during the coronavirus pandemic.

The proposal would also expand eligibility for the $1,400 checks to some people left out of the first two rounds of relief.

One key group is adults who can be claimed as dependents on other people’s income tax returns, such as college students or elderly people being cared for by their adult children.

Both previous stimulus bills providing direct payments only allowed taxpayers to collect additional money for dependent children younger than 17.
