Hi ekim,


You received a T4A slip with an amount shown in Box 119 pertaining to the benefits for premiums paid for group term life insurance policy.

To enter this amount, please follow the steps below:

1- In the "Left side menu on the Interview tab", select "Interview setup".

2- In the screen on your right, go to the "Pension" group, check the box for "Pension income. Other income and split pension income (T4A, T4A(OAS), T4A(P), T4A-RCA, T4RSP, T4RIF, T1032)" and click "Next" at the bottom of the page.

3- Return to the "Left side menu on the Interview tab" and select "Pension income, T4A". On the page to your right, click on the plus sign "+" icon to the right of the line "T4A - Pension, retirement, annuity, and other income".

4- On the page that appears entitled "T4A - Pension, retirement, annuity and other income", go to line "Other information (click on the triangle to see the list of choices)" located in the middle of the page. Then, from the drop-down menu, choose the option "(119) Premiums paid to a group term life ins. plan" and enter the amount shown on your T4A slip.
