How much you can get
How much you receive per period
The Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit (CRCB) provides a payment of $500 (before taxes withheld) per household for each 1-week period applied for. After the CRA withholds a 10% tax at source, the actual payment you get is $450 per 1-week period.
Only one eligible individual in the same household (living as a family at the same address) can apply for the benefit per week.
Each household may receive payments for a maximum of 38 weeks between September 27, 2020 and September 25, 2021.
If you're eligible, your payment amount will be the same for each period you’ve applied for, even if:
- you are caring for more than one family member who needs supervised care
- you worked for less than 50% of the work week
How we calculate your payment
- $500 (CRCB gross amount)
- minus $50 (10% tax withheld at source)
- equals $450 (amount you receive per period)
