Fraud Prevention

  • You can verify that a payment has been received by checking your statement on the account you used to sign up for direct deposit. Your payment amount will be deposited directly into the account.
  • You can also confirm that the payment was sent by the CRA by logging into CRA My Account.
  • KCCU or the CRA will never send you an email, text or Interac e-transfer to a link asking for your personal information to receive your benefit payment or refund. These are scams and taxpayers should never respond to these fraudulent communications or click on any of the links provided.
  • Direct deposit helps reduce the risk of mail fraud and delays caused by a postal disruption.

Return or Repay Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB)

You may want to return or be required to repay to the CERB to the department (CRA or Service Canada) that issued you the CERB payment if you:

  • return to work earlier than expected, including being paid retroactively
  • applied for CERB but later realize you are not eligible
  • Receive a CERB payment from both Service Canada and the CRA for the same period
