USERS OF FULL AGE TAKEN IN CHARGE BY FAMILY-TYPE RESOURCES
1167-2019O.C. 1167-2019, s. 4.
1.1. Where a user of full age taken in charge by a family-type resource has not reached the age of eligibility for the full pension under the Old Age Security Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. O-9), his monthly contribution is equal to the basic benefit, the adjustments and allowances for an independent adult applicable to him under the Individual and Family Assistance Act (chapter A-13.1.1), minus the personal expense allowance referred to in subparagraph b of the first paragraph of section 375 of the Regulation.
If this user is not receiving any benefit under the Individual and Family Assistance Act, the benefit amount used for the calculation of the contribution referred to in the first paragraph corresponds to the basic benefit amount applicable to an independent adult under the Social Solidarity Program established by that Act, adjusted in accordance with section 157.1 of the Individual and Family Assistance Regulation (chapter A-13.1.1, r. 1).
1167-2019O.C. 1167-2019, s. 4.
1.2. Where a user of full age taken in charge by a family-type resource has reached the age of eligibility for the full pension under the Old Age Security Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. O-9), his monthly contribution is equal to the Old Age Security pension and the maximum guaranteed income supplement payable under that Act, minus the personal expense allowance referred to in subparagraph b of the first paragraph of section 375 of the Regulation. However, the monthly contribution may not exceed $963.
Notwithstanding the first paragraph, the contribution of a user of full age is determined in accordance with section 1.1 where this user, although he has reached the age of eligibility for the full pension under the Old Age Security Act, is ineligible for a pension under that Act.
The maximum monthly contribution referred to in the first paragraph is indexed, on 1 January of each year, on the basis of the Pension Index established in accordance with section 117 of the Act respecting the Québec Pension Plan (chapter R-9). The amount so indexed is rounded off to the closest dollar.
1167-2019O.C. 1167-2019, s. 4.
1.3. Where the period of taking charge of a user of full age is less than 30 days within a given month, the monthly contribution is prorated to the number of days of presence. For the application of this section, each month is considered to comprise 30 days.
The initial day of taking charge of the user is considered a day of presence, but the day of the user’s departure is not counted. The user’s days of temporary leave are counted in the days of presence.
