Apply for EI Benefits and Get Financial Support in Times of Need
The Employment Insurance (EI) program offered by the government of Canada provides support to those who have lost their jobs. To apply for this program, there are specific eligibility criteria and information that you must provide to the Employment and Social Development Canada website. In this article, we will provide you with a detailed overview of all the necessary information and requirements that you need to know before applying for EI benefits.
- To complete your EI application, you must have the following information on hand:
- - Social Insurance Number (SIN)
- - Proof of immigration status and work permit (if SIN begins with 9)
- - A parent's last name at birth
- - Mailing and residential addresses, including postal codes
- - Complete banking information for direct deposit, including financial institution name, bank branch (transit) number and account number
- - Names, addresses, dates of employment, and reason for separation for all your employers over the last 52 weeks
- - Detailed explanation of facts (if you quit or were dismissed from any job in the past 52 weeks)
- - Dates, Sunday to Saturday, and earnings for each of your highest paid weeks of insurable earnings in the last 52 weeks or since the start of your last EI claim, whichever is the shorter period.
- Applying for EI Benefits:
It is highly recommended that you apply for EI benefits as soon as possible by submitting an online application, taking approximately 1 hour to complete. If you started a new EI claim within the last 52 weeks and there are still weeks payable on that claim, it is automatically reactivated. In some cases, it may be to your advantage to cancel or end your old claim and start a new claim if it will result in an increase in the amount of your benefits or the length of your benefit period. If you choose to submit a new claim, you must have enough insurable hours and meet the qualifying conditions for a new claim. Furthermore, you must serve a 1-week unpaid waiting period before you're entitled to receive payment. To apply, you'll be required to provide all the necessary details mentioned earlier. After submitting your application, you’ll receive a benefit statement with a 4-digit access code which is necessary for monitoring the application status every 2 weeks.
Record of Employment (ROE):
Employers issue ROEs to provide information about your work history. ROEs are necessary to determine if you are eligible to receive EI benefits and how much you will receive. To view past and recent ROEs from previous employers, you can visit MSCA. Electronic ROEs are sent directly to Service Canada by the employer, and you don't need to request copies from your employer to provide to us. However, if your employer issues paper ROEs, you must request copies of all ROEs issued for you in the past 52 weeks or since the start of your last claim, whichever is shorter, and provide them to us as soon as possible after you submit your EI application. You can mail them or drop them off at a Service Canada Center.
We use an automated system to review and process ROEs. If the system identifies any issues, we'll review the ROE manually. This system is closely monitored, and all its actions are tracked. We use this system according to the Government of Canada's Directive on Automated Decision-Making.
Benefit Statement and Status Check:
Once your application is received, we will mail a benefit statement with a 4-digit access code which you need to follow up on your application and complete your reports. It is important to note that receiving a benefit statement does not mean that we've made a decision about your claim. To check the status of your application, you can sign into MSCA or contact Service Canada. If you're not registered with MSCA, you can create an account with the benefit statement received.
In conclusion, EI benefits program offers provision to those in need, and specific eligibility criteria and detailed information is required to be provided for the application process. This article has given detailed information about mandatory information, applying and reactivating for EI benefits program, record of employment, an automated system and the benefit statement along with how to check the status of the application. We encourage you to apply for EI benefits as soon as possible, and ensure that you provide all necessary information to determine whether you're eligible for the benefit statement.
