New COVID-19 Disability Benefits

The House of Commons passed legislation yesterday to give Canadians with disabilities a one-time benefit of $600 to help cover extra COVID19 costs.  

The one-time disability payment — which originally was only going to benefit Canadians who qualify for the federal disability tax credit — will now also go to those receiving disability benefits through the Canada Pension Plan, the Quebec Pension Plan and Veterans Affairs Canada.
