Finances of AVS and AI supplementary benefits

PC-AVS expenditure has always been higher than PC-AI expenditure. However, until 2006, the PC-AI expenditure was approaching that of the PC-AVS. By contrast, between 2007 and 2011, and since 2013, PC–AVS expenditure increased more sharply than PC-AI expenditure. The abolition of the ceiling on annual PC (especially for individuals in a residential care facility) explains the uncommonly rapid rate of growth that the AVS and AI supplementary benefits scheme experienced in 2008.
