More than 1 million payments will go to households that did not receive a previous stimulus payment or are now eligible to get additional funds.

The Social Security Administration's weeks-long holdup in providing new income information to the IRS for federal beneficiaries kept millions of households that depend on the government to get by from receiving additional relief.
