The provincial government plans on releasing more information on its inflation relief packages next week. 

In November, Premier Danielle Smith announced support for families, seniors, and vulnerable people to help deal with rising inflation. 

Those supports included $600 per child or senior living in the household for families with household incomes under $180,000. Payments would be spread out in $100 installments over six months. 

People who rely on AISH, Income Support, and PDD were also eligible to claim $600 over those same months. 

Those payments were expected to start this month. 

On Wednesday (Jan. 4) Matt Jones, the provincial minister of affordability and utilities, announced on Twitter that the province expects to divulge more information on the payments on Monday.

"We will be announcing important affordability payment application and distribution details, including the launch date," said Jones in the tweet. "Albertans on AISH, PDD, Income Support or Alberta Seniors Benefit will get their payments automatically and will not need to apply." 

People who do not rely on those programs will have to manually submit applications, the details of which are expected to be part of the announcement. 

The province followed through on its promise to suspend the provincial fuel tax on January 1 and plans to index personal income tax brackets, cap electricity prices and give out utility rebates to help curb inflation costs.
