In order to receive Canada child benefit (CCB) you have to file your 2015 and any other outstanding tax returns as soon as possible.
What is CCB?
The CCB is a monthly tax-free payment for families with children under the age of 18. It will replace the Canada child tax benefit (CCTB), the national child benefit supplement (NCBS), and the universal child care benefit (UCCB).
Who can receive the CCB?
If you have children under 18 you are most likely eligible to receive the CCB.
Do you need to apply to get the CCB?
If you already received the CCTB or UCCB, you don’t need to apply. However, both you and your partner must file your 2015 tax return.
