BC Seniors Supplement

The Senior’s Supplement is a provincial top-up that is paid on a monthly basis to low-income residents of BC who are receiving Old Age Security/Guaranteed Income Supplement or Allowance. 

The maximum rate is $49.30 per single senior and $120.50 for senior couples. It is paid on the 27th of every month to seniors who are eligible.

You do not need to apply for this as it is calculated from your previous year’s taxes. Once again, it is important to file your taxes.
