Question & AnswerWhat happens at a Social Benefits Tribunal ODSP appeal?
The (SBT) will usually let you have someone with you for support. This can be a family member, friend, or other support person.
Someone who comes with you for support is not allowed to speak at the hearing. So, if someone is coming with you as a witness, they can’t be your support person as well.
The SBT can let your support person sit through the hearing with you. A witness has to wait outside the hearing room until they come in to give their evidence.
