CERB: Receiving two payments is not a mistake

Did you find two Canada Emergency Response Benefit payments in your account? They're both yours, states minister.

Apr 09, 2020 - EightSix Staff

Some Canadians were surprised to find two Canada Emergency Response Benefit payments in their accounts this week. Rest assured, no mistake was made.

CERB provides Canadians who lost their income due to COVID-19 with $2000 per month, which is automatically deposited in bank accounts in one lump sum. To qualify, individuals must have earned at least $5,000 in the past year, have not worked or do not expect to work for 14 days in the initial four-week coverage period, and have lost all their income.

The two payments some Canadians received are because the program is retroactive to March 15. One payment covers the four week period of March 15 to April 11, and the second payment will be for the period starting April 11. In some cases, this second payment was simply deposited early.
