Any recipients of a surprise cheque this week?

The holidays came early for 630,000 Canadians this month. Cheques worth thousands of dollars have started showing up in mailboxes across the country. Understandably, many folks have been skeptical, but it's the real deal.

A family member received a cheque this week, just over $1600 and she has no idea how or why. But she's not complaining. :smt045

We recently issued payments of financial benefits as part of the conclusion of a government-regulated demutualization process for Economical Mutual Insurance. Demutualization means Economical Mutual changed from a mutual company into a company with shares. As a result of that transaction, the company was required by law to distribute financial benefits to eligible policyholders
