To be eligible, the you must be getting the Family Allowance and the Supplement for Handicapped Children for the same child.
The Supplement for Handicapped Children Requiring Exception Care is paid to the parents of a child under age 18 who has severe and multiple disabilities that prevent the child from carrying out his or her life habits, or whose medical condition requires specified complex medical care at home. A child could be eligible for the Supplement if his or her condition corresponds to either of those situations.
In addition, depending on the severity of the child's condition and age, a child can be eligible for Tier 1 or Tier 2 of the supplement. The eligibility criteria for Tier 2 are less restrictive than those currently applied to determine eligibility for the Supplement for Handicapped Children Requiring Exceptional Care's Tier 1.
To learn more about the eligibility and requirements for each situation and disability, you will need to view the interactive table on the Supplement for Handicapped Children Requiring Exceptional Care page. The detailed table can be found under the “What are the eligibility requirements?” drop down menu.
