New Canadian workers benefit

In 2024, eligible Canadians can expect a new payment from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for the Advanced Canada Workers Benefit (ACWB) on January 12th.

The Advanced Canada Workers Benefit (ACWB) is a payment designed to provide financial assistance to eligible workers and their families facing low incomes.

The Advanced Canada Workers Benefit (ACWB) aims to assist individuals and families with low incomes. Depending on their income levels, eligible single workers have the potential to receive up to $1,518, while families may qualify for up to $2,616.

The benefit payments are distributed throughout the year and are divided into three quarterly instalments. This means that the financial support is provided in chunks across different periods, helping recipients manage their expenses more effectively.(To Know more contact Us)

What are the Advanced Canada Workers Benefit (ACWB) payments?

If you qualify for the Canada Workers Benefit (CWB), you can receive three quarterly payments in advance through the Advanced Canada Workers Benefit (ACWB), amounting to up to 50% of your CWB.

To be eligible for these advanced payments, you need to be a resident of Canada at the beginning of each quarter.

The first ACWB payment was made on July 28, followed by the second on October 12. The third and final ACWB payment for this period is scheduled for January 12, 2024.

Usually, on January 12, qualifying families or individuals will get this payment; however, it could take up to 10 business days for the funds to show up in the linked bank account with the CRA.

  • Residency: You must live in Canada throughout the year.
  • Household Composition: You should either reside with your spouse, common-law partner, children, or be an individual aged 19 or older as of December 31, 2022.

Disability Supplement Payment

The maximum disability benefit payment is set at $737 for single individuals with an adjusted net income below $33,018. This financial assistance aims to provide crucial support to those facing low incomes due to disabilities. However, as the income level increases beyond this threshold, the payment gradually reduces. It’s important to note that the support is structured to be more substantial for individuals with lower incomes, ensuring a targeted approach to address the specific needs of those with disabilities.

Furthermore, it’s noteworthy that individuals whose adjusted net income surpasses $37,932 won’t receive any disability supplement. This threshold is established to prioritize financial aid for those with lower to moderate incomes, emphasizing the tailored nature of the disability benefit system. This way, the program aims to effectively allocate resources to individuals who may face increased financial challenges due to disabilities and lower incomes.

The maximum disability benefit payment is $737 if a household’s adjusted family net income is less than $43,210.

No disability supplement is paid if one spouse meets the eligibility requirements for the disability tax credit and their adjusted family net income exceeds $48,124, or if both spouses meet the requirements and their adjusted family net income exceeds $53,037.(To Know more contact Us)
