2018 Estimated and 2019 estimated

I am a bit confused about this part under 2017 and 2018 Tax Summary (Federal), where it says 2018 estimated (for last year) and this year 2019 estimated.  Do the client receive the amount of GST/HST credit quarterly? And the monthly amount for the Provincial tax credit?

I am working on a client who has no income but his wife is receiving social assistance payments, on his return under 2017 estimated, it shows for GST/HST credit: Annual 568.00 and for Provincial tax credit:  Annual 1,068.00 and for the RRSP contribution limit:  1,800.00.

But this year (no income) his 2019 estimated, it shows for GST/HST credit: Annual 580.00 and for Provincial tax credit:  Annual 616.00 and for the RRSP contribution limit:  0.00. 

Why is the RRSP contribution limit for 2019 estimated showing 0.00 this time?

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
