Why Are Washington State Families Getting A Check From The Attorney General?
WA state successfully settled a massive antitrust lawsuit against large chicken and tuna corporations that engaged in price-fixing.
From the press release:
Ferguson’s office is providing $40.6 million in financial restitution to every household whose income is at or below 175% of the federal poverty level.
Approximately 402,200 Washington households will receive checks. More than 1.2 million Washingtonians, or approximately 15% of the state population, reside in households receiving checks.
- Single-person households will receive a $50 check.
- Multi-person households will receive a $120 check.
Washingtonians who do not receive a check by the end of the year but think they qualify should visit refundcheck.atg.wa.gov. They will have six months to complete a short claims form and get their share of the funds.
So as you can see, you might be due a check, and even though it might not seem like much, every little bit counts. You can read more about the lawsuit and checks here.
