Service Description

Assures a guaranteed minimum monthly income for BC residents aged 65 and over receiving the federal Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS)/ Old Age Security (OAS) or federal Allowance (formerly Spouse's Allowance). If the income level of an eligible senior's total income falls below the level guaranteed by the province, the supplement is provided to make up the difference. Seniors in receipt of federal Old Age Security (OAS) or the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) will receive the Senior's Supplement automatically, provided their GIS rates make them eligible. Supplement is also paid automatically to people ages 60 to 64 who are eligible, in receipt of the federal Allowance, and married to an OAS pensioner.
