The IRS has extended the deadline to register for stimulus checks by five weeks.

The Internal Revenue Service announced Monday the new deadline to register for an Economic Impact Payment is November 21st.

The extended deadline is for those who don't typically file a tax return, which includes millions of people, many living on limited incomes.

The IRS is encouraging those who haven't received a check to enter their personal information at the "Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info" tool at IRS DOT GOV before the new November 21 deadline.

You can provide bank account information to receive the money via direct deposit or you can wait for a check to be mailed.

A single person can receive up to $1,200 in stimulus cash. Married couples can receive up to $2,400.

People with qualifying children ages 16 or younger at the end of 2019 can get up to an extra $500 for each child.
