Line 11900 – Employment insurance and other benefits

Note: Line 11900 was line 119 before tax year 2019.

Your benefits are shown on a T4E slip. See the back of your T4E slip to find out how and where to report these amounts.

If you received Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) payments from Service Canada, find out how to report T4E amounts on your tax return.

If you received employment insurance maternity and parental benefits or provincial parental insurance plan benefits, see line 11905 for additional instructions on reporting these amounts.

If you already repaid the excess benefits that you received directly to the payer, you may be able to claim a deduction. See line 23200

You may have to repay some of the benefits that you received (see line 23500) if the result of the following calculation is more than $70,375:

  • the amount from line 23400; minus
  • the amount reported on line 11700 and line 12500; plus
  • the amount deducted on line 21300 and/or the amount for a repayment of registered disability savings plan income included on line 23200.

If you have an amount shown in box 30 of your T4E slip, see line 23200.

If you have an amount shown in box 21 of your T4E slip, see line 25600.

If you received an amount that covers more than just the amount you were entitled to receive in 2021, see Qualifying retroactive lump-sum payments.
