What is the Family Supplement?

The Family Supplement is an extra amount you get if:

  • you, or your spouse or common-law partner, receive the Canada Child Benefit, and
  • your annual family income is not more than $25,921.

This can increase your benefits to as much as 80% of your previous earnings. But there is still a maximum of $595 per week.

If you and your spouse or common-law partner both get EI benefits at the same time, only one of you can receive the Family Supplement. Usually, it is better if the one who gets less EI receives the Family Supplement.
