A handicapped child
The purpose of the supplement for handicapped children is to provide financial assistance for families to help with the care and education of a handicapped child. The handicap must significantly limit the child in carrying out daily activities for a period expected to last for at least 1 year.
The supplement for handicapped children
- This financial assistance is paid to all families with a child under 18 who is deemed to be handicapped by the Régie. The amount is the same for all children, regardless of the handicap or family income. To receive the supplement for handicapped children, you must be eligible for child assistance payments and meet certain requirements.
- In 2014, the amount of the supplement is 185 $ a month for each handicapped child.
- To file an application for a supplement for handicapped children, you must fill out the corresponding form and return it to the Régie. Send us the section pertaining to the parents as soon as possible because the supplement can be paid retroactively for a maximum of 11 months before you filed an application, if your child meets the eligibility requirements during that period.
