Newly Arrived Resident's Waiting Period


Recommended Posts

On the Human Services website, the following is stated:


"You usually have to wait 104 weeks (the Newly Arrived Resident's Waiting Period) before you can access most payments and benefits. This waiting period doesn’t apply to family assistance payments."


I assumed that no assistance is given so am a little surprised. What payments are classified as "family assistance"?

If you are entitled to Family Assistance, you will also receive the School kids bonus ( $400 per primary child, $800 high school) and a new thing this year is a $1000 voucher for dental treatment for children up to 18. The dental voucher is great as if your child doesnt use it all up in 1 visit, the remaining balance carries over.
