Applying to Revenu Québec for Advance Payments of the Work Premium

Clientele
Anyone who believes they are eligible for the work premium.

Requirements
To be eligible for advance payments of the work premium, you must meet the following requirements when you file your application:

  • You are active on the labour market.
  • You reside in Québec and have the status of Canadian citizen, Indian, permanent resident or refugee.
  • You are not a full-time student, unless you are the mother or father of a child who lives with you.
  • You are not confined in a prison or similar institution.
  • You are 18 or older on the 1st day of the month when you apply, or, if you are under 18, no one is entitled to child assistance payments on your behalf during that year.
  • You believe that you are entitled, for the year concerned, to a work premium greater than:
    • $500 if you have a dependent child
    • $300 if you have no dependent children
  • You consider that your family income for 2017 will be less than:
    • $17,801 for a single person
    • $$27,631 for a couple with no dependent children
    • $34,824 for a single-parent family
    • $47,868 for a couple with at least one dependent child
  • You are registered for direct deposit

Note
When two spouses believe they are entitled to the work premium for the year, only one should apply for advance payments for both of them.

Advance payments of the work premium from Revenu Québec correspond to 50% of the estimated premium if the applicant has a dependent child (see Definitions), or 75% if the applicant has no dependent children. The rest of the premium will be received after his or her tax return is filed.

Advance payments are made by direct deposit only, by the 15th day of each month. The number of payments in the year depends on the date when Revenu Québec receives the application.

To apply for advance payments of the work premium, proceed in one of the following ways:

  • Fill out the form Work Premium: Application for Advance Payments 2017, attach the required documents and mail to Revenu Québec.
  • Use the online service Apply for Advance Payments of the Work Premium (requires My Account registration).
