After you apply – approved or denied

After you apply for the Social Solidarity Program, here is what you can expect as you wait for a decision on your application, how long you have to wait and what you can do next.

What to expect after I apply

Your application will be processed once you have provided all the documents and information required for processing. During processing, the person in charge of analyzing your application may contact you to obtain documents or to clarify some information. If you are eligible, the amount of your benefits will be determined beginning on the day your application is received.

The Ministère reserves the right to ask you at any time to provide any additional information required to verify your eligibility and determine the amount that could be granted to you. If you don’t provide the documents or information in the time they ask, they may refuse your application.

What will the Ministère do after they receive my application

Once you submit your application, the Ministère will verify your information. The Ministère will get your tax information from the previous year and, if you have one, your spouse’s tax information also from Revenu Québec. They will get the information about your vehicles from the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ), and the information about your properties, from the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l’Habitation. They can verify any of your information any time and without your consent. They can verify personal information from the Québec Parental Insurance Plan (QPIP) or programs under its responsibility.

A full listing of how can verify your information is found in the Important information to be read before completing your application for the Last-Resort Financial Assistance section.

Important information about benefits for Indigenous Peoples

If you are Indigenous there are many things that affect the benefits you can get and the dollar amounts you can get from them. These include the agreements your band or governing body has with provincial, territorial, and federal governments. Before applying to any benefits, you should speak with your governing body, if applicable.

AFOA Canada and Prosper Canada are currently seeking funding to develop an online tool that serves the needs of Indigenous people living in Canada.
