T4E: Statement of employment insurance and other benefits

Your T4E: Statement of employment insurance and other benefits slip shows you the employment insurance and other benefits you received or repaid in the year, and any income tax that was taken off from these amounts. You’ll get a T4E if you received:

  • COVID-19 related benefits (like the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB))
  • Amounts paid to you because you lost your job through no fault of your own
  • Work-sharing benefits
  • Financial assistance because you were part of an approved employment program
  • Maternity and/or parental benefits
  • Tuition assistance

Note: If you didn’t receive a T4E slip and you think you should have, you can check your My Service Canada account (if you’re registered), and view and print any copies you find in there. You can also contact Service Canada at 1-800-206-7218 to have duplicate slips sent to you.

I received CERB payments through Service Canada

If you applied for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) through Service Canada, your payments will be included with your regular Employment Insurance (EI) benefits in box 14 on your T4E slip. You’ll get a statement listing the benefits you received during the year, so you’ll know exactly how much CERB you were given. If you applied for the CERB through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), you’ll receive a T4A slip showing the amount of CERB you received instead.
