You must re-apply every 2 weeks

The CRB does not renew automatically. To keep getting your payments, you must re-apply after each period, up to a maximum of 25 periods. Extended

To confirm the number of periods you have already received the CRB, you can review your application history in CRA My Account, under “COVID-19 Support Payment Application Details”.

Make sure you are still eligible

You must continue to meet all the CRB eligibility criteria to keep receiving the benefit. Check that you’re still eligible every time you re-apply.

If your application needs further validation and you have to provide additional documents, go to How to submit your validation documents.

Continue to look for work

The CRB gives support to those who are unable to work or have reduced income due to COVID-19. You must be looking for work to be eligible. We encourage you to consult Job Bank, Canada’s national employment service, that offers tools to help with your job search.

How to re-apply

You may only apply after the 2-week period you are applying for has ended. The application process is the same every time.

Determine when you can apply.

If you know when to apply, apply online or by phone.

When to expect your payment

If you’re eligible for the CRB, you can expect to get $1,000 ($900 after taxes withheld) for each 2-week period for up to 21 periods.

Processing time without validation

Direct deposit
Direct deposit takes about 3 to 5 business days if you have it set up with the CRA.

By mail
A mailed cheque should arrive in about 10 to 12 business days.

Processing time with validation

If your application requires further validation, processing may take up to 4 weeks from the time we receive your documentation.
