2. Tell ODSP about child support payments
The Ontario Human Rights Commission has released their latest take on mandatory vaccines, passports and testing, here: http://www.ohrc.on.ca/en/news_centre/ohrc-policy-statement-covid-19-vaccine-mandates-and-proof-vaccine-certificates. In light of this update, and the new directives that the Province released a few weeks ago, we are in the process of updating our covid testing content. Please re-visit the site to the updated content when it is available.
Question & AnswerCan I get child support and also get money from ODSP?
Child support payments don’t affect the amount of you get from the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP).
This rule started January 1, 2017. But it only applies to payments that are owed for periods of time that start on January 1, 2017, or after that date.
You still have to tell ODSP about any child support payments that you get.
But ODSP does not count child support payments when they decide if you qualify for income support.
Reporting child support payments when you’re on ODSP
You need to report child support payments to ODSP.
If you get the same amount every month, you don’t need to keep reporting it every month.
But if the amount you get goes up or down, you have to tell ODSP. You can do this by giving your caseworker a copy of a new agreement or that shows the change.
