OAS/GIS/Allowance are reviewed for adjustment quarterly.

Note: 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.
