A Dollar for Your Dreams: B.C. woman left puzzled after receiving $1 ICBC rebate cheque

Victoria, British Columbia — As residents of British Columbia await their Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) rebate cheques to materialize, one B.C. woman is asking the Crown insurer questions after receiving a $1 cheque in her mailbox.

The cheques, averaging about $190 according to ICBC, were sent out last week after seeing weeks-long delays due to cyberhacks.

When O’Neill tweeted her frustrations—calling the cheque a “colossal waste of money”—ICBC responded by saying it “will be issuing refund cheques for any amount of $1 or more,” a change from the insurer’s “historical practice of not issuing cheques for $5 or less.”

ICBC has not said how many cheques under $5 have been mailed out, though it estimates 0.2 percent of cheques will have value of $1.

As for O’Neill, she says she doubts she’ll ever cash the cheque and reap the $1 rewards.

“It’s a huge waste of resources that could go someplace else,” she said.
