education of a child under age 18.
The child is living with you OR was living with you when
he or she was placed by a youth centre AND you are
paying the financial contribution required by the centre.

Either you or your spouse is one of the following:
— Canadian citizen;
— protected person;
2

2

You are not entitled to Family Allowance payments if:

d’accueil et d’intégration des demandeurs d’asile
(PRAIDA) or because you are a child’s foster family or a
subsidized guardian;
You are exempted from paying income tax by Revenu
Québec;
Your child is married or in a de facto union and tax
credits were transferred to his or her spouse;
You are a refugee claimant.
In the case of a blended family, the application must be
filed by the parent of the child.
Do you need to file an Application for Family
Allowance Payments?
You do not need to file an application with our agency in order
to register a baby born in Québec: the Directeur de l’état civil
will provide us with the required information.
However, you must fill out this form in the following
situations:
Your child was born in Québec and we ask that you
file an application because we require more information
(check “Birth in Québec” in section 1).
You are an immigrant or become a Québec resident
(check “Arrival in or return to Québec” in section 1).
Your child arrives in or returns to Québec (check “Arrival
in or return to Québec” in section 1).
You live in Québec but your child was born outside
Québec (check “Arrival in or return to Québec” in
section 1).
You obtain custody of a child (check “Change in
custody” in section 1 and fill out the Information on
Child Custody form).
You retain custody of a child following the breakdown
of your union or the death of your spouse and you were
not previously receiving Family Allowance payments
(check “Change in custody” in section 1 and fill out the
Information on Child Custody form).
You obtain shared custody of a child (check “Shared
custody” in section 1 and fill out the Information on
Child Custody form).
You adopt a child (check “Adoption” in section 1).
You can apply for Family Allowance payments directly on our website at www.retraitequebec.gouv.qc.ca. You will
avoid any postal delays and we can confirm immediately that we have received your application.

Within the meaning of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act
(Statutes of Canada, 2001, c. 27)
ii
LPF-800A (2019-11)
At our request, because your child was placed by a
youth centre and the financial contribution was not paid
for more than 12 months and:
you resume payment of the required contribution;
OR
the child is back home (check “End of placement
or resumption of payment of the financial
contribution required by the youth centre”).
In cases of shared custody
The Taxation Act provides for Family Allowance
payments to be made to both parents at the same time,
if the percentage of custody time is between 40% and
60% for each parent on a monthly basis. Example: 40%
= 3 days a week, 50% = every other week, 60% = 4
days a week.
In accordance with the Act, we must consider the actual
custody time. Therefore, you must notify us if custody
is shared. In addition, we cannot take into account any
agreement entered into by the two parents.
The amount to which you are entitled is equivalent to half
of the amount that you would have received for the child
if the child were not in shared custody.
If the child gives entitlement to a Supplement for
Handicapped Children, that amount is shared as well.
Payment dates
Your Family Allowance payments will be made on the first
working day of each quarter, that is, four times a year:
in July for July, August and September;
in October for October, November and December;
in January for January, February and March;
in April for April, May and June.
You can receive your payments on a monthly basis.
However, to do so you must apply online or by telephone.
The payment dates are provided on our website at
www.retraitequebec.gouv.qc.ca.
Who receives the Family Allowance payments?
Family Allowance payments are made to only one
person per family, who is generally the person who filed the
application. However, if your spouse already receives Family
Allowance payments, he or she will receive the payments for
each child indicated in this application.
Conjugal status
In order for us to determine the amout of your Family Allowance
payments, you must provide information about your conjugal
status, whether or not you have a spouse. If you have been
living with a de facto spouse for at least 12 months, you must
inform us. If your spouse lives outside Québec, you must
provide his or her address, whether you are married or de
facto spouses.
Family Allowance amounts
The Family Allowance is set on the basis of the following
four criteria:
number of dependent children under 18 living with you;
number of children in shared custody;
your family income;
your conjugal status (with or without a spouse).
1
Note that we can make Family Allowance payments for a
retroactive period of 11 months before the date on which we
received your application, if you met the eligibility requirements
during that period.
Income tax returns used to set payment amounts
In order to obtain Family Allowance payments, you and your
spouse must file a Québec income tax return every year, even
if one of you does not have any income to report.
If you or your spouse earned income outside Québec over the
past 24 months, you must provide the additional information
requested on the form (see section 6).
You can use CalculAide on our website at
www.retraitequebec.gouv.qc.ca to find out the amount
of the Family Allowance payments to which you could
be entitled.
