Veterans Affairs Canada corrective payments

If between 2003 and 2010, you received a disability pension or certain related benefits that we administer, you may receive a corrective payment because of a discrepancy in our calculations. Most payments are automatic, however. Please contact us at 1-866-522-2122 if:

  • You no longer receive benefits that we administer, or
  • You are the legal representative of the estate of a deceased benefit recipient.

If you are legally entitled to inherit the assets of a deceased benefit recipient, you may apply to receive a corrective payment.
