Changes in the 500 plus for seniors. Such payments may be made from March 1, 2023.

500 plus for dependent persons is a benefit paid to people who have low retirement pensions, pensions or other benefits. An allowance, called a supplementary benefit for people unable to live independently, is granted to those who need help from others in their everyday life – e.g. in washing, dressing, shopping or cooking. About 767,000 people have already benefited from such a benefit. Government data show that nearly half of the 500+ recipients are seniors aged 75+.
