It is hard to get a straight answer on this, but as of now we do not believe CPP will “claw back” the CERB payments or count them as income. However, the issue will be that many people who are getting CPP disability and CERB won’t actually qualify for the CERB and will have to pay it back. If you meet the criteria for CERB then you won’t have to worry about that.
