If my total income from all sources (including EI benefits for maternity) is high, am I required to repay some of the EI I received?

Generally, when your personal tax return is filed, if you received regular benefits and your net income is greater than $59,250, you may be required to pay 30% of either the total regular benefits received in the year or the excess amount of net income over $59,250, whichever is less. However, the EI repayments do not have to be made if the EI received is considered a special benefit, such as the maternity benefit.
