Gifts and Assets Ontario Supporting Financial Security for People with Disabilities in Ontario
In Ontario, a person receiving benefits through the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) can not hold more than $5,000 in assets and can not receive more than $6,000 in voluntary gifts or payments in a 12-month period without losing their disability benefits.
These asset and gifts limits are too low.
These limits must be raised so persons who are receiving ODSP can save for their futures, keep the income they earn from employment and let family members and friend provide more financial support.
The restrictions on gifts and assets
- Keep annual income for persons with disabilities below the poverty line or low-income cut-off (LICO) thresholds,
- Fail to leverage the individual wealth of families,
- Keep individuals and families dependent on support programs such as the Ministry of Community and Social Services Passport Program,
- Negatively impact quality of life for persons on ODSP in Ontario,
- Restrict access to resources in times of crisis and emergency,
- Prevent persons with disabilities in Ontario from becoming economic citizens
