Notes:

  • All rates are monthly.
  • In addition to the support allowance, families may also receive a monthly payment for each child under 19 years of age. For more information, see Child Benefits Top-up Supplement.
  • Shelter increments continue to increase by an additional $35 for each additional dependant after unit size 7.
  • In cases where the family unit consists of a couple where one adult only receives OAS/GIS/Allowance and the Senior's Supplement and the family receives top up from BCEA, the system will automatically deduct these payments. Deductions are first taken from the family’s support portion, then the shelter portion. Any remaining entitlement will be paid by the system [for the OAS/GIS and Senior’s Supplement rates, see Rate Tables – Senior’s Supplement].
