December 2021 – 15 min read
If you have a child under 18 with a confirmed disability, you could be eligible to receive the CDB.
If you already receive the Canada Child Benefit (CCB), you’ll receive the CDB automatically.
For 2021-2022, you could receive up to $242.91 a month per eligible child.
For the period of July 2021 to June 2022, you could receive up to $2,915 ($242.91 per month) for each eligible child, however the amount you could actually receive will therefore depend on your individual circumstances. For example, the benefits start being reduced when your AFNI is over $69,395.
