Infographic – Maternity or parental leave – Phoenix impacts
There is a claims process especially relevant to public servants who were on maternity or parental leave and whose top-up payments were delayed because of Phoenix.
A pay problem could impact your finances for a few years. Here’s an example:
- Amira normally earns $63,000 per year.
- In 2016, while on maternity leave, her top-up wasn’t paid and she earned only $43,000.
- In 2017, the $20,000 top-up bumped her income to $83,000.
- Amira paid an extra $600 in income tax and received $2,600 less in Canada child benefit, since it is based on the 2017 income.
- She can submit a claim to her department.
- Amira received $3,200 in total.
