Answer to the question:

If I earn or receive income while I am receiving benefits, will this affect the amount of my benefits?

Yes. If you are receiving maternity benefits, each dollar earned or received is deducted from your benefit.

If you are receiving paternity benefits, parental benefits or adoption benefits, each dollar earned or received that is over 25% of your gross weekly benefit is subtracted from your benefit.

If your gross weekly benefit is less than $200, you have a right to up to $50 in income without any deduction from your benefit, but each dollar earned or received over $50 will be deducted from your benefit.

You must declare income promptly, to avoid having to reimburse overpayments.

If you earn or receive income such as those listed above during your benefit period, it could be more advantageous for you to have your next benefit payment suspended. For information about this, please contact the Centre de service à la clientèle.
