However, the amount awarded depends on the level of your income. Beyond a certain level of income, a progressive participation you will be asked..
The Apa cannot be combined with the following benefits:
- Simple Allocation social assistance for the elderly
- Aid from pension funds
- Financial assistance to pay a home help
- Disability compensation benefit (PCH)

The Apa is not subject to any recapture of the sums received during the life or death of its holder.
The Apa is tax-free. It may entitle you to a tax credit ..
