Description & Services
Description of service(s) To assist low-income seniors in New Brunswick, the government offers an annual benefit to qualifying applicants. 
ELIGIBILITY 
 
To qualify for the 2016 annual benefit of $400 the applicant must have been a resident of New Brunswick on December 31, 2015 and a recipient of a benefit under the Old Age Security Act (Canada), notably: 
The Federal Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) during 2015 (must be 65 years or older) or 
the Federal Allowance for the Survivor during 2015 (must be between 60-64 years old) or 
the Federal Allowance during 2015 (must be between 60-64 years old). 
Important: Persons in receipt of a Federal allowance who are under the age of 60 do not qualify for this benefit. 
Where both spouses receive the GIS and reside in the same household, only one $400.00 benefit will be granted. However, where spouses live separately (for example, one residing in a nursing home), both will be eligible for the benefit.
