Child benefits payment dates

Child benefits are paid at the beginning of each month.

The child benefits you receive always cover the previous month. For example, in September you will receive child benefits for the month of August.

You will receive monthly child benefit payments from your caisse d’allocations familiales until your child turns 25 (subject to conditions between the ages of 18 and 25). The amount of benefit varies according to :

  • family situation (orphan of one or both parents, single-parent family, income of parents/guardians, number of siblings)
  • state of health (child with a medical condition or disability)
  • his age
