Indian residential school survivors who got a Common Experience Payment are also eligible for Personal Credits. Personal Credits are available for educational purposes, and cover up to $3,000. Family members of eligible people can also use these credits.
To use your Personal Credits, you must submit your Personal Credits Acknowledgement Form. This form was sent in the mail to anyone who got a Common Experience Payment. The deadline to submit your Personal Credits Acknowledgement Form is October 31, 2014.
Once your Personal Credits Acknowledgement Form has been processed, you will get a Personal Credits Redemption Form. This form must be post marked no later than December 1, 2014.
To request a form, or for help with filling out your forms, call 1-866-343-1858. If you’re hard of hearing, call 1-877-627-7027 (TTY).
