In principle, family benefits are elusive.
However, certain family benefits may be seized in the event of non-payment of child support (e.g. maintenance, school canteen fees) or other expenses related to the child's other needs (e.g. hospitalisation costs):
- Basic Allowance and Shared Child Education Benefit
- Family allowances
- Family supplement
- School Reentry Allowance (ARS)
- Family Support Allowance (FSA)
Moneys are seized up to a monthly amount based on the family's income and expenses.
FYI : if a person obtains a family benefit after defrauding or making a false statement, Caf or MSA) retrieves this unfit. The Caf (or MSA) may withhold future payments of another family benefit.
