Declaration of Attendance at an Educational Institution

Payment of a Dependant Child's Allowance Beyond Age 18 Under the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Superannuation Act.

Conditions of Entitlement

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police Superannuation Act provides that dependant children of certain deceased plan members can receive an allowance beyond age 18 if the following conditions are met.

The dependant child of a plan member must be:

  1. between 18 and 25 years of age
  2. in full-time attendance at an educational institution since
    1. his/her eighteenth birthday; or
    2. the plan member's death, whichever is later

Method and Duration of Payment

Where the director is satisfied that a student meets the conditions of entitlement, payment will be made directly to the student. The amount of the allowance will depend on the salary and length of pensionable service of the deceased plan member and possibly the number of dependant children entitled to an allowance.

Where a dependant student is deemed to be entitled to an allowance, payment will commence with effect from the later of:

  1. the date of the plan member's death; or
  2. the date the child reaches 18 years of age

The payment will continue until the end of the month in which the current academic year ends. Payment will recommence for the following academic year upon receipt of a properly completed declaration of attendance. This form will be issued each year to those individuals currently receiving an allowance. Additional forms will be supplied on request.

Payment will be made on a retroactive basis for regular vacation periods, periods of illness, or other approved absences only if the dependant child commences or resumes full-time attendance at school immediately.

Entitlement to an allowance will terminate when the dependant child ceases attendance or attains age 25 during the academic year. Payments will cease at the end of the month in which such an event occurs.
