Hello,

I applied for RAP, and was approved. But I was approved at $0, which I know must be incorrect because I had already discussed with them that because June was a rare 3-paycheck month, I had to submit all three paystubs, even though it misrepresents my salary.

Anyways, I called them to ask and make sure that they got all of my information because if anything, my payments should have gone up. And they told me that my monthly income was what two paystubs added up to. So somehow, they didn't see my third one. Maybe there was a glitch when uploading or something, because I know I submitted three.

And now I don't know what to do. The representative said my two options were to just accept it and hope I don't get a random audit which would get me in trouble, or to cancel the RAP and pay the full amount, which I cannot afford.

What kind of advice can you provide?

I would suggest escalating the issue at the NSLSC.  Best to get the info corrected.   Maybe you can appeal and reapply with new stubs from a month where you don't have three pay cheques....

If they discover the mistake it could come back to haunt you years from now.

I think they've handled it correctly.  If you have three pay checks in a month, you're on a pay check system where you're paid every two weeks.  Your entitlement would ( should!) be calculated on an annualized ( or monthly) basis averaged over 12 months.  So, if you're paid X dollars every two weeks, you're earning 26X in a year, and 26X/12, on average, every month.
