General Information

Eligibility for the Allowance Programs is based on a number of factors. These include war service, age or health, income and residency. Effective February 18, 1995, allied Veterans must have pre-war domicile in Canada to meet the residency requirements for the W.V.A. Act.

Allowances are paid to low income veterans, civilians, merchant navy veterans and their dependants and the amount of allowance paid is based on the applicant's other income and domestic status. Other income is supplemented by the allowance to an income ceiling.

Service requirements vary depending upon the type of Allowance for which application is being made (i.e. War Veterans Allowance or Merchant Navy Allowance or Civilian War Allowance).

However, the same requirements for age/health, and income apply to all three Allowance Programs.
