Dependant Benefits???
« on: February 10, 2017, 22:03:14 »
Hey all, this is my first post so my bad if this is in the wrong board, or if there have been previous threads about this.

To make a long story short; i applied for CmbtEngr and Arty and am currently undergoing the application process and what not. My girlfriend is due in April so ill be having a kid to be providing for.

how exactly do the benefits work for dependants? i understand that she(girlfriend) wont receive any benefits as she is not my spouse yet, however from reading the website i am under the impression that my kid will be covered as he will be considered a dependant?

Will i have to jump through hoops to be able to get my kid covered with the benefits or is it a relatively easy process?

feedback from anybody, especially from those with first hand experience will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers my Canadian brothers :subbies: :cdn:
