Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB)

Keep getting your payments

On this page

You must re-apply every week

The Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB) does not renew automatically. To keep getting your payments, you must re-apply after each eligible period, up to the maximum of 44 payments per household.

To confirm the number of periods that you have already received the CRCB, you can review your application history in CRA My Account, under “COVID-19 Support Payment Application Details”.

Make sure you are still eligible

You must continue to meet all the CRCB eligibility criteria to keep receiving the benefit. Check that you're still eligible every time you re-apply.

If your application needs further validation and you have to provide additional documents, go to How to submit your validation documents.

How to re-apply

You may only apply after the 1-week period you are applying for has ended. The application process is the same every time.

Determine when you can apply.

If you know when to apply, apply online or by phone.

When to expect your payment

If you're eligible for the CRCB, you can expect to get $500 ($450 after taxes withheld) for the 1-week period you applied for.

Processing time without validation

Direct deposit
Direct deposit takes about 3 to 5 business days if you have it set up with the CRA.
By mail

Processing time with validation
