CERB Just Got Extended
First of all, All thanks to The Canadian Government and Justin Trudeau, you guys are truly awesome. They are doing everything right to make sure every Canadian household is safe and healthy.
Below is the note on the CERB Extension from 24 to 28 weeks by the Government of Canada:
Extra 4 weeks available – CERB extended from 24 weeks to 28 weeks for workers who:
stopped working due to COVID-19 or
are eligible for Employment Insurance regular or sickness benefits or
have exhausted their Employment Insurance regular benefits or Employment Insurance fishing benefits between December 29, 2019, and October 3, 2020.
What it all means is – all eligible Canadians can still apply for two more monthly CERB payments before the new EI program kicks in.
