What does the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) mean for my family?

The enhanced UCCB will benefit every single family with children under the age of 18 in Canada.

Under these changes, parents will receive $1,920 for each child under 6 and $720 for every child 6 through 17 every year.

This is not a tax credit, it is money directly into the pockets of hard-working Canadian families each month.

Is my family going to be worse off because of these changes?
