How to Return or Repay Your CERB Subsidy

May 07, 2020

I want to let you know if you have received a C.E.R.B. payment(s) and realize you are ineligible, here is how you can return the money


The CRA has provided convenient ways for you to get the CERB as quickly as possible. Most people are able to complete the application in under 2 minutes, and receive payments through direct deposit within 2 business days.

The CRA also needs to ensure that the CERB is paid to and kept only by those individuals who are eligible.

You must repay the CERB if you no longer meet the eligibility requirements for the 4-week period in question.

This could happen if:

  • you earned employment or self-employment income earlier than expected

  • you applied for the CERB but later realize you’re not eligible

  • you receive a CERB payment from both Service Canada and the CRA for the same period
