Can I apply for other EI special benefits?

Yes, you can get other EI special benefits immediately before or after your maternity benefits or parental benefits.

For example, you can get sickness benefits if:

  • you are sick
  • you were sick before your child was born
  • you have a miscarriage or stillbirth within the first 19 weeks of your pregnancy

And if your new child is sick, you might be able to get the family caregiver benefit for children.
