Here's how to check if you have unpaid cash from the CRA
While a lot of things in life seem too good to be true, this one is, in fact, true!
The Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) has launched an online tool on its website that allows residents to check if they have any unpaid cheques from the CRA that they can cash in.
Here’s how to do it:
- Log into your online account (register if you don’t already have one)
- Look at the “Related Services” section
- Click on “Uncashed cheques”
While the CRA hasn’t said much about the tool, a ton of residents on social media are already celebrating the money they’ve received (in some cases owing from almost a decade ago!).

“I once found $20 in a winter coat the following season but this is a lot better,” said Fraser Simpson on Twitter. “You’d think that this would have been more highly publicized by the CRA themselves but then again we don’t often hear about uncashed lottery tickets either.”
If you’re wondering if you’ve got any extra money waiting for you, well, it certainly doesn’t hurt to cheque.
