Did you know that there is a financial supplement for premature children? After countless efforts by Préma-Québec and the province’s neonatologists, Retraite Québec (formerly the Régie des rentes du Québec) relaxed the criteria for the supplement for handicapped children to include cases of prematurity. This measure means that premature children born at 28 weeks or earlier (or weighing 1000 grams or less) are eligible for an allowance during two years. Obviously, being born premature is not considered a handicap as such. The application form is called by this title to cover the broadest possible number of Quebec children with special needs. Ask the doctors, nurses and social workers for more information.
There are also special employment insurance for Family caregiver benefit for children (FCBC), which includes babies born prematurely before the 33nd week.
Ask the doctors, nurses and social workers for more information.
