Disability Tax Credit

Reminder to anyone who may be eligible, or have a loved one who may be eligible for the Disability Tax Credit, who have not yet applied:

The Government of Canada has announced a one-time payment of $600 to help persons living with disabilities, in recognition of some of the extraordinary expenses they have encountered during the COVID-19 pandemic. Individuals who are determined to be eligible for the disability tax credit (DTC) or certain other disability-related benefit programs, may be entitled to receive the payment. 

Canadians living with disabilities who are eligible for the DTC but who have not yet applied, will have until September 25, 2020 to do so.  For more information on how to apply for the DTC, please visit: http://www.canada.ca/disability-tax-credit.

Recipients of the payment are encouraged to make sure their address and banking information is up to date in order to receive prompt payment. For callers who need help with changing their address, updating direct deposit, accessing My Account, or questions related to the DTC or their application, they can call CRA’s Individual Enquiries Line at 1-800-959-8281 (English) and 1-800-959-7383 (French) between 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (local time) Monday to Friday.
