How to apply for CERB for the period in the past

Due to CRA login issues, I was unable to apply for CERB for two periods, and the website does not allow me to apply any more.

Is there anyone successfully applied through making telephone calls? What kind of question do they usually ask? Thanks.

Call tel:1-800-959-2019 or tel:1-800-959-2041 to apply. You don’t need to sign in to CRA.

You have to call for older periods as mentioned, the questions are simple and straightforward typically in relation to identity confirmation.

you just need your SIN and DOB. then select the periods you want to apply and confirm you meet the criteria. That is it.
