Seniors have worked hard their entire lives. They’ve been there for us - and now we need to be there for them. So today, we’ve announced new measures to make sure they have what they need to get through this difficult time. Here’s what that means for our seniors:

For seniors eligible for the Old Age Security pension, we’re providing a one-time tax-free payment of $300 - with an additional $200 for seniors eligible for the Guaranteed Income Supplement. This means those eligible for both the OAS and GIS would receive a total of $500.

For seniors who feel isolated because of the pandemic, we’re expanding the New Horizons for Seniors Program. With this investment, we’re creating even more programs across the country to help seniors maintain or improve their social support network.

For seniors whose 2019 income information has not been assessed, we’re temporarily extending Guaranteed Income Supplement and Allowance payments. With this extension, we’re making sure our most vulnerable seniors continue to receive their benefits when they need them the most.

In these tough times, we need to look out for one another - particularly our seniors, who are among the most threatened by COVID-19. That’s why we’re taking these steps to get them the help they need. For more details on today’s announcement, click here:

05/12/2020

Any senior who is eligible for the Old Age Security (OAS) pension will receive a $300 payment, and an additional $200 is being sent to seniors eligible for the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS).
The federal government estimates there are currently 6.7 million seniors who are eligible for the OAS pension and 2.2 million who are eligible for the GIS.
