How can I register?
We can help you with the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) application form if you contact or visit:
1100 Dufferin Ave., Wallaceburg, ON
Do I have to be on Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) to qualify?
No. You can qualify without being registered with ODSP. You will need to register with jobmatch (519-627-7882, email@example.com) and have a doctor fill out a verification of disability form and meet ODSP qualification guidelines.
Is there reimbursement for employment related expenses?
Yes. Once an employee reports their income, an additional $100.00 Work Related Benefit is added to their ODSP Income support each month to assist with transportation and other work related expenses. This reimbursement exists as long as an employee is working and reporting.
Is there money available to assist with expenses related to job search and job start up?
Yes, there is a start-up benefit of $500.00 to help you secure and keep a job. Eligible expenses include clothing, licenses and other related costs.
When I start reporting income will I lose my ODSP Income Supports?
No. As of September 1, 2013, you can earn up to $200 a month without having your income support reduced. If you earn more than $200 a month, half of your earnings above $200 are exempt – this means half of your earnings do not affect your eligibility or the amount of money you get for Income Support
