Until December 31, 2019, the benefit calculation simulator will give you an estimate of the benefit amount you could receive, based on the maximum insurable earnings of 2019, which are $76 500.
As of January 1, 2020, this estimate will be based on the maximum insurable earnings for 2020, that is to say $78,500.
The maximum insurable earnings of $78,500 will be taken into account for the benefit periods starting on January 5, 2020, since QPIP benefit periods always begin on a Sunday.
Please note that if you are a wage earner who is also self-employed, you should contact the Centre de service à la clientèle to obtain an estimate of the gross amount of benefits to which you may be entitled.
Important message concerning pay equity
People who received a retroactive pay increase as part of the pay equity agreement should contact the Centre de service à la clientèle for more information before trying the benefit calculation simulator.
