You can thank Twitter user @3rdperiodsuits and Reddit user hdrons for a widely unheard-of feature on the Canada Revenue Agency website that’s been netting Canadians hundreds of dollars they are owed in uncashed government cheques.
The tweet that started it all

My Account on the CRA website has a section of “uncashed cheques”.
Highly suggest checking to see if you’ve got any. I had 105 dollars from 2017.
@JMaxLEdger found $12,000
$12,000 from 2006! You are a legend.— Max (@JMaxLedger) February 27, 2020
If you are understandably weary of CRA scams and thinking this is one of those too-good-to-be-true type social media stories – even the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) itself responded saying they just want Canadians to get the benefits they deserve.
We just want you to get the benefits and credits that you’re entitled to! 😊— Canada Revenue Agency (@CanRevAgency) February 27, 2020

Here is the link on the CRA’s website. Follow the link and then login. Once you are logged in, scroll down to the bottom of the “related services section” on the right side.
