If you are on Income Assistance, Disability Assistance, Comforts Allowance or the BC Senior's Supplement, and not  on the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit, any of the three recovery benefits, or Employment Insurance, you will automatically receive an extra $150 BC Recovery Supplement on cheques issued in in January, February and March 2021. You do not need to do anything to receive this money as it will be added to your usual payment. 

If you are on disability assistance, you will also automatically receive an extra $52 transportation supplement beginning in April and continuing until BC Translink resumes charging fares.
