As the new emergency benefit has come into effect as of April 6th, our IAM Canadian office has put a brief powerpoint clarifying the difference between regular EI processes and new processes under the CERB program.

Dear brothers and sisters, here is something that will help you out in regards to applying for Employment Insurance. I know that a lot of you may have forgotten how to apply, and some of you may have never applied in the past. Either way, this will help you all out in case you have any questions or concerns. Please click on the blue link for all the info you need.
Given the confusion over the application process, and members selecting the option “natural disaster” and “group termination”, when applying, please do not select the “natural disaster” nor “group termination” option as you’ll be asked for a 16 digit code, which is not being provided.
Members will only need to use A00 (A zero zero). A few members have done it this way and have not had issues applying.

God bless, and stay safe.
