How eligibility periods work

Each Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) eligibility period is a specific 2-week period. When you apply, you will receive a $1,000 ($900 after taxes withheld) payment for the period that you applied for.

The CRB does not renew automatically. You must apply for each period separately. You can apply for a maximum of 13 periods out of the total 26 periods available between September 27, 2020 and September 25, 2021. The 13 periods do not have to be taken consecutively.

You may apply for benefits retroactively for any period up to 60 days after that that period has ended.

Period start and end dates

Each 2-week period starts on a Sunday and ends on the Saturday of the following week. The earliest you can apply is on the first Monday after the period has ended.
