The support varies with the number of children in the family, the number of children with disabilities, their ages, the family income, and the nature and severity of the disability (ies), etc.
There are also tax benefits for divorced parents paying child support.
Two significant programs of government support are the Child Disability Benefit (CDB) and the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB). Having had a successful history of obtaining these benefits for hundreds of clients across Canada, we at Disability Credit Consultants consider ourselves experts at attaining these benefits for our family clients, and could most certainly help you apply for them.
There may also very well be other benefits for which your family may qualify. We suggest calling us at 1-855-752-0288. A short conversation is likely all that will be required to go to the next step.
Listed below are some high-level guidelines for Child Disability Benefit eligibility:
- Child Disability Benefit (CDB)
The Child Disability Benefit is a tax-free monthly sum paid to families who care for a child under the age of 18 with a severe and prolonged impairment in mental or physical functions. The amount varies according to several criteria including the number of children in the family, the family income, the number of children with disabilities, etc. The CDB is paid as a monthly supplement to the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB).
- Canada Child Tax Benefit. (CCTB)
The Canada Child Tax Benefit is a tax-free monthly payment made to eligible families to help them with the cost of raising children under the age of 18. The CCTB may include the Child Disability Benefit (CDB).
To be eligible for the CCTB the child must be under 18 and live with you. You must be primarily responsible for the care of the child, be a resident of Canada and you or your spouse of common-law partner must be, under most circumstances, a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
