My school year does not begin in the fall, how where can I find out when it would be best to file my application?

Please contact the person responsible for integrating disabled students at your educational institution. He or she will let you know when it would be best to file your application and in order to receive your allowance in time for the beginning of school.

Can I still apply to the Allowance for Special Needs Program if my school year or study period has ended?

You have 60 days following your last recognized month of study to file an application for assistance under the Allowance for Special Needs Program. After that, you can no longer apply under this program for that year.

If you file an application for a special needs allowance after the period of study for which you required forms of assistance, you must submit the Recommendation on Types of Assistance Required form (1088) form covering that period of study together with the receipts and paid invoices for those forms of assistance so that the exact amount of the allowance can be determined.

What will happen if I don’t send my receipts and paid invoices before the deadline?

The allowance you receive under this program is an advance. Consequently, if you don’t send your receipts and paid invoices within the prescribed period or if your documents do not justify the financial assistance you received, Aide financière aux études reserves the right to recover the overpayments by deducting them from the amounts yet to be disbursed to you.

If the amount owing cannot be recovered from the assistance yet to be disbursed or if there are no further instalments scheduled, your file will be transferred to the Aide financière aux études Service du recouvrement (Collection Department), unless you immediately repay that amount.
