Why update your marital status?
To get your benefits just right!
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) uses your marital status to calculate benefit and credit payments that are right for you. If your marital status is out-of-date, you could be missing out on money, or there is a chance you could owe money.
Once you successfully update your marital status, the CRA will recalculate your payments from the month after your status changed.
