The purpose of the supplement for handicapped children is to provide financial assistance for families to help with the care and education of a child with a handicap

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 Retraite Québec. 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 2016, the amount of the supplement is 189 $ a month for each handicapped child.
- To apply, you must fill out the Application for a Supplement for Handicapped Children form and return it to us. Send us the Parent's part as soon as possible because the supplement can be paid retroactively for a maximum of 11 months before the month during which you filed an application, if your child meets the eligibility requirements during that period.
