EI special benefits for self-employed people

Under the Employment Insurance Act, self-employed Canadians and permanent residents—those who work for themselves—are able to apply for EI special benefits if they are registered for access to the EI program.

Please refer to this booklet which outlines what EI special benefits are available, who can register for them, how they are calculated, and how long they can be paid.

EI special benefits are part of the EI program, which is administered by the Government of Canada.

There are five types of EI special benefits:

  • Maternity benefits
  • Parental benefits
  • Sickness benefits
  • Compassionate care benefits
