Veterans Affairs Canada April 01, 2019

In the event of a Veteran's service-related death before age 65, the survivor and dependent children would receive the same Income Replacement Benefit amount as the Veteran would have until he or she reached age 65. Then the survivors and dependent children would receive 70% of the benefit to which the Veteran would have been entitled after age 65 (increased from 50% in Budget 2016). This would continue for life.

The change came into effect on April 1st, 2019.
