Line 31600 – Disability amount (for self), for someone who died

You can claim a disability amount if the deceased met certain conditions. For more information about these conditions, see Guide RC4064, Disability-Related Information.

Tax tip

If the deceased or anyone else paid for certain eligible expenses, such as an attendant or for care in a nursing home or other establishment because of the deceased's impairment, it may be more beneficial to claim the amounts paid as medical expenses instead of the disability amount. In some circumstances, both amounts can be claimed.

For more information, see Attendant care and care in a facility and Income Tax Folio S1 F1 C1, Medical Expense Tax Credit.
