No, there are no resource requirements to qualify for the Custom Autonomy Allowance (Apa).

If you fill out the conditions of age, residence and loss of autonomy, you can get the Apa regardless of your income.

However, the amount awarded depends on the level of your income. Beyond a certain level of income, a progressive participation will be requested.

The Apa cannot be combined with the following:

The Apa shall not be subject to any recovery of the sums received either from the living or from the death of its holder.

The Apa is tax exempt. It can give you the right to a tax credit.
