Help for Seniors

April 24, 2016

We’re boosting the Guaranteed Income Supplement top-up benefit for single seniors: up to $947 annually to help lift low-income single seniors out of poverty.

This will improve the financial security of about 900 000 single seniors across Canada.

The Government will restore the eligibility age for Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement benefits to 65. This will put thousands of dollars back in the pockets of Canadians as they become seniors.
