It could be worth reapplying if your CRB application failed to process or said you were "ineligible". That’s the message coming from the Canada Revenue Agency this week, after a number of applications reportedly failed when submitted.\nAccording to a report from CBC News, “dozens” of Canadians received an error message when attempting to apply for the new Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB).\nIn response, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has recommended trying again after 6 a.m. on Monday.\nSince the new benefit launched, multiple technical issues with the online application service have been reported by Canadians trying to claim the cash.\nThat said, it didn’t stop 240,000 people applying on the first day it was available.\nEditor's Choice: ‘Counterfeit’ Hand Sanitizer May Have Been Sold At Dollarama Stores Across Canada\n\n#CERB may have ended, but we’re still here to support you!

We appreciate your patience. pic.twitter.com/xCUoEPoOHK— Canada Revenue Agency (@CanRevAgency) October 12, 2020\n\nWhy were some applications rejected?\nAccording to a report from CBC News, multiple Canadians who believe they are eligible for the benefit received an error message while trying to submit their application.\nThis led to some people failing to get their application approved, even if they should have qualified for the bi-weekly cash.\nThis isn't the first issue related to the CRB application process that's been flagged, either.\nThe online form left some applicants confused about whether they qualified for the money if they've been out of work since before the pandemic, or have lost their job recently but not directly due to COVID-19.\n\n\n\n\n\nIf you tried applying for #CRB and got this error saying you’re ineligible, please try again. If your application continues to be stopped, it’s because you might be eligible for EI, or you applied for EI earlier this year. #COVID19 1/2 pic.twitter.com/AAh0ggi1Y5— Canada Revenue Agency (@CanRevAgency) October 19, 2020\n\nWhat has changed?\n\n\n\n\nFortunately, the CRA had a solution for those whose applications may have failed the first time around.\n"If you tried applying for #CRB and got this error saying you’re ineligible, please try again," they explained via Twitter.\n"If your application continues to be stopped, it’s because you might be eligible for EI, or you applied for EI earlier this year," they added.\n"Their application may be approved if our updated information supports their claim," the agency reiterated to CBC.\nSo, it's definitely worth double-checking if you're application hasn't worked until now!\n\n*This article's cover image is for illustrative purposes only.
