ICBC says COVID-19 rebate cheques are now being mailed out

ICBC says the money is in the mail.

The Insurance Corporation of British Columbia announced Friday evening that “small batches” of COVID-19 rebate cheques have been mailed out to eligible customers and is working to send out more rebates in the coming weeks.

“As of Friday morning, the first batch of COVID-19 rebate cheques has been issued to approximately 30,000 customers,” ICBC said in a press release.

The announcement comes a little more than a week after ICBC delayed issuing cheques due to a cyberattack on a third-party vendor contracted to provide printing and distribution services.

ICBC says customer information was not compromised and an investigation into the attack is ongoing in Ontario.

In February, the provincial government announced that ICBC would issue a one-time rebate cheque to eligible motorists starting in March.

Cheques are expected to vary from $25 to $400, depending on the type of insurance purchased, however, drivers with the most at-fault crashes will see the largest rebates.
