  • You can also confirm that the payment was sent by the CRA by logging into CRA’s My Account.
  • The CRA will never send you an email, text or Interac e-transfer to a link asking for your personal information to receive your benefit payment or refund. These are scams and taxpayers should never respond to these fraudulent communications or click on any of the links provided.
  • Direct deposit helps reduce the risk of mail fraud and delays caused by a postal disruption.
