Canada workers benefit – Advance payment dates

Advance payment dates

The working income tax benefit is a refundable tax credit that you can claim when you do your taxes.

Advance payment

You could receive up to half of your benefit in four separate payments with the advance payment. The payments are usually sent on the fifth day of the month in April, July, October, and January. If you do not receive a payment on the expected date, please wait 10 working days before contacting the Canada Revenue Agency.
