[CRA] Uncashed Cheques from previous years - "Free" Money (YMMV)

New feature on CRA website. You can check if there are any uncashed cheques waiting for you from past years. Look for "Uncashed Cheques" after login.

Nothing for me but some people on reddit are reporting success. Hope some will get a nice surprise.

Thanks op! I noticed this about a week ago. If it's fairly recent they'll just deposit it into your account after calling in (no need to fill out the form). If it's old like, 2012 you gotto go do the form.

Pro tip! Sign up for automatic deposit

Useful but potentially misplaced thread.

I didn't have any uncashed cheques but thanks for the heads up.

Read the subject.. figured those CRA phone scams had come to RFD, but it turns out it's a real feature!

No free monies waiting for me though :(

That's unfortunate. I can help. If you send me $500, I can unlock thousands for you.
Don't like the thread? Hide it or report it. Don't incessantly complain about it in the thread, please.
