Changes to the universal child care benefit
* Benefit rises from $100 to $160 a month for each child under age 6, effective Jan. 1, 2015.
* New benefit of $60 a month for each child between ages 6 and 17, effective Jan. 1, 2015.
* Above benefits will not be reflected until the July 2015 payments, resulting in a retroactive adjustment.
* The enhanced UCCB will replace the current child tax credit as of 2015. But the UCCB changes will not replace the Canada child tax benefit (CCTB) you may currently receive.
