I don't know about you, but I don't hear a lot of People complaining about all that extra Money they have. Yet somehow every single day, half a million dollars in uncashed cheques are being added to CRA's pile of nearly eight million cheques waiting to be claimed by their owners.
The CRA is again asking us to please get our money using the “Uncashed Cheques” feature on its website. And while you’re at it, please sign up for direct deposit if possible, the agency pleads.
This couldn't be easier - visit CRA’s website and look for the agency’s “My Account” service. Once logged in, click on the “Uncashed Cheques” link at the bottom of the “Related Services” column on the “Overview” page. HERE'S a direct link.
Unpaid amounts that have sat for over six months will be listed on that page, as well as the necessary forms to claim YOUR money.
