An instalment of your child’s allowance is made via a cheque issued in his or her name. The cheque is sent to your child’s educational institution, which then remits it to you. The instalment, which is a reimbursement of material resources or repair or replacement costs, is made following approval of the Application for a Special Needs Allowance – Youth or the Application for the Authorization of Equipment Repair or Replacement. The latter must be accompanied by a price quote in the case of equipment replacement or a cost estimate in the case of equipment repair.
