A person who is no longer eligible for the Family Allowance payments and who must repay an amount must do so as soon as possible. That person simply sends us a cheque or postal money order made out to the Québec Minister of Finance. It is important that his or her social insurance number be indicated on the payment.
If the amount is not repaid within 90 days, we transfer the file to Revenu Québec.
Revenu Québec then informs the person in writing of the amount that he or she must pay to the Minister of Finance in accordance with the terms mentioned on the notice. No interest will be charged if the person repays the amount within the time limit set by the minister. However, if payment is not made on time, interest will be calculated as of the deadline given by Revenu Québec.
