  • Extention of the Admission of low Income Periods for Parents of Minor Children Requiring Exceptional Care

What's New in 2020

​Extension of the recognized periods of low income for parents of minor children requiring exceptional care​

The periods of low income taken into account for the calculation of various benefits under the Québec Pension Plan (QPP) will be extended from 7 to 18 years for parents of minor children eligible for the Supplement for Handicapped Children Requiring Exceptional Care. The change, which was announced in the framework of the 2019-2020 Budget, will allow parents to exit the labour market to care for their children, without having their retirement, disability or surviving spouse's pension reduced during the 18-year period taken into consideration. They will also remain eligible for all benefits under the QPP. The implementation of the measure will require legislative amendments.
