Disposable income - 2017 to 2019

The government has taken immediate action to put money back into the pockets of Québec households in order to better support families and help improve the quality of life for seniors.

For example a couple with one work income of $40 000 and three children age 3, 5 and 7 will see an increase of $2 065 in disposable income in 2019 compared to 2018, largely thanks to a more generous family allowance payment. The couple will have a disposable income of $60 864 in 2019, compared to $58 799 in 2018.

In addition, if you are 70 or over and have a low income, you may be entitled to claim the new senior assistance amount, which is up to $200 for a single senior and $400 for a senior couple.

Note that, in the detailed calculation, numbers preceded by a minus sign (–) correspond to the amounts you would have had to pay in tax or for certain contributions.


The calculator enables you to estimate the assistance to which you may be entitled, based on certain assumptions intended to reflect the most common situations. The calculator is meant to provide only an estimate. The exact amounts will be determined by the responsible departments and bodies, on the basis of the specific characteristics of each measure and according to the particular situation of each household.
