Woke up to a deposit of $600 or so today. VEterans Affairs site shows nothing and Pension site doesn't say anything either. All my co-workers who collect pensions received the same. Anyone know what it comes from?

Sounds like it might be that federal $600 COVID relief check to people with disabilities. I believe VAC was going to automatically process those.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

I thought that, but some of my co-workers who got it don't have any disability claims.

I got $300.00, and seem to recall an announcement a while back re a payment to people who were getting a pension, with an additional amount if they had been deemed disabled.

I got 600, same conundrum, thought it might have to do with my wife’s union settling, but sounds like it could be for having a tinnitus disability?
Edit: I only get ~$57 a month so that’s basically a year’s payment.

Supposedly everyone getting a VAC pension will receive.  Not sure how I feel about it.  (I received it too.)

Did the payment come from VAC or the CRA?

It was listed as FED/FED, the same as my DND pay - that's what confused me.

Exactly. I got the same.
As for who it comes from? It comes from taxpayers. As for department, is that really an issue? It's  free, kinda. There is no tax or accounting.

I bought a gun with it.
Corruption in politics doesn't scare me.
What scares me is how comfortable people are doing nothing about it.

Try not to take things personally. What people say about you is a reflection of them, not you.

Anyone in receipt of veterans benefits, CPP disability or the disability tax credit was to automatically receive $600 to offset additional expenses from dealing with Covid. My spouse was pensioned 5% under the old charter and I am 102% under the new... and I qualified under all 3 categories. We both received a $600 one time payment process through veterans affairs
