Amount of the Family Allowance payment

Family Allowance payment amounts vary from one family to another. The amount is indexed each year in January and recalculated in July based on:

  • the number of dependent children under age 18 who live with the beneficiary 
  • the number of children in shared custody
  • the conjugal situation (with or without a spouse)
  • family income, that is, the combined income of both spouses, if applicable. To find out the amount you could receive in 2024, consult the table below. You can also estimate the amounts to which you could be entitled using the CalculAide tool.
