Update

As of February 1, 2021, the withholding of amounts from parental insurance benefits for the repayment of a debt will resume.

The Ministère du Travail, de l'Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale is ending the flexibility measure that temporarily suspended the withholding of amounts from parental insurance benefits.

For more information on the repayment of a debt, consult the Payment method section of the Centre de recouvrement.

The tax slips showing the amount of parental insurance benefits you received in 2020 are now available in your online file. You can consult, download and print them as needed. 

If you asked to receive a printed version of your tax slips by mail, they will be sent by mail between January 25 and February 28, 2021.

As of January 1, 2021, the maximum insurable earnings taken into account when setting parental insurance benefits will increase to $83,500. Premium rates for the Québec Parental Insurance Plan remain unchanged in 2021.
