The Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) provides financial assistance to individuals and eligible family members for essential living expenses such as food and rent. In addition to monetary support, ODSP offers health benefits covering prescription drugs and vision care, as well as employment support to facilitate job finding and career advancement. The specific amount of assistance depends on individual circumstances, with potential additional funds for benefits like transportation to medical appointments and increased support for immediate family members.
ODSP ensures a tailored approach, offering up to $1,308 per month for basic needs and shelter to single individuals. Additional support is available based on various factors, including benefits and the presence of immediate family members. The program is designed to address the unique needs of each individual, offering income support, health cost benefits, and various disability supports. Eligibility is determined based on financial and medical information, and recipients are guided on their rights and responsibilities throughout the application process. The program also encourages recipients to explore employment opportunities, providing information on working, earning, and reporting income to maintain ongoing support.
