Disrupted Postal System

First, the CRA has issued a notice to Canadians that wildfires across the country have impacted the postal system, which may cause a delay in the delivery of CRA benefits and credit checks.

It recommends checking Canada Post’s website regularly for delivery status information. Direct payment through the government’s My Account function can also help prevent delays.

Second, there is a chance that the CRA’s debt recovery program will have an impact on your payment.

The Canadian Revenue Agency’s (CRA) tax balancing program delayed child benefit payments at the beginning of the month. There were complaints from numerous parents that their child tax credit had been reversed.

By going into their CRA My Account, Canadians can see where their benefits stand. If you are having trouble paying back your government debt, you should call the Canada Revenue Agency at 1-888-863-8662 for debt related to government benefits or 1-888-863-8657 for debt related to government taxes.
