What does the Canada Emergency Response Benefit mean for people receiving disability benefits
There is a lot of uncertainty during these strange times as we push through the COVID-19 public health emergency. Last month, the Government of Canada announced the new Canadian Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) to help people who have been financially impacted by the crisis. If you are a person who receives disability benefits, this information pertains to you.
What is CERB?
The Canada Emergency Response Benefit provides temporary income support to workers who have stopped working related to COVID-19.
Can I get the CERB if I am receiving disability benefits?
