[ARCHIVED] Fraud Alert: Alberta's Affordability Action Plan

Alberta Affordability

As part of the Affordability Action Plan, millions of Albertans struggling with inflation and the high cost of living can apply for the Affordability Payments program until June 30, 2023.

  • Families with household incomes under $180,000 can apply for $600 per child under 18.
  • Seniors who have household incomes under $180,000 and do not receive the Alberta Seniors Benefit can apply for $600 per person.
  • Anyone receiving monthly benefits through AISH, Income Support, Alberta Seniors Benefit or services through Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD) will automatically get their personal $600 payment, but will need to apply for additional payments if they have kids under 18.

Fraudulent texts are circulating asking Albertans to submit banking information to receive their affordability payments. Be vigilant about potential scammers. To avoid falling victim to fraud, ensure you are accessing the Government of Alberta's website directly.  At no time will the Government of Alberta text a link to fill out and submit a secure form.
