Apply for the CRCB now and get the financial assistance you need!
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many individuals needing to care for their children or family members who require supervised care. For those who are employed and/or self-employed, the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB) provides a source of income support when they are unable to work due to caregiving commitments.
I. Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB)
The CRCB provides income support, which is aimed at assisting individuals who are unable to work because they must care for a child under 12 years old or a family member who needs supervised care. This benefit is particularly applicable when schools, regular programs, or facilities are closed or unavailable due to COVID-19, or if the individual is sick or self-isolating, or is at risk of serious health complications due to COVID-19.
To qualify for the CRCB, there are certain eligibility requirements that must be fulfilled. These include the inability to work at least 50% of the scheduled workweek because of caregiving duties, the necessity to care for a child under 12 years or a family member who requires supervised care, and the lack of receiving any benefits from CRB, CRSB, workers' compensation benefits, EI benefits, or QPIP benefits, among others. Moreover, the person under their care must either have COVID-19 or its symptoms, be at risk of serious health complications if they get infected, or may be self-isolating due to COVID-19. An individual must reside in Canada, be present in Canada, have a valid Social Insurance Number (SIN), be at least 15 years old, be the only one in their household who is applying for the benefit for the week, and have earned at least $5,000 before deductions in 2019, 2020, or in the 12 months before the date they apply.
III. Benefit Details
The CRCB provides $500 ($450 after taxes withheld) for each 1-week period, per household. However, the CRCB does not renew automatically; if the situation continues after a week, the individual must apply again. Additionally, each household can apply up to a total of 26 weeks between September 27, 2020, and September 25, 2021. It is also possible to apply for any eligible one-week period for up to 60 days after the period has ended.
IV. Income Eligibility
Maternity and parental benefits from EI and similar QPIP benefits, along with all employment or self-employment income like tips, non-eligible dividends, honoraria, and royalties count as income. Disability benefits, student loans, bursaries or scholarships, pension income, and amounts from other COVID-19 benefits such as CERB, CESB, CRB, CRSB, and CRCB do not count as income.
V. How to Apply
The application process for CRCB is not cumbersome and can be completed online or by phone. If applying online, individuals must click on the provided link on the official website. If applying by phone, they should call 1-800-959-2019 or 1-800-959-2041.

It is also important to certify eligibility for the benefit.
