People who never got a stimulus check, now have more time to try and get one.

The IRS has extended its deadline to register for the money from Oct. 15 to Nov. 21.

It's meant to help those who don't typically file a tax return.

That includes many who live on limited incomes.

The IRS says it sent letters to 9 million people in September to let them know they may be eligible for the $1,200 payment.
