Hardship Assistance for Persons with Disabilities Rate Table
Hardship Support for Persons with Disabilities
Effective: April 1, 2019
Hardship Shelter for Persons with Disabilities
|Family Unit Composition||Maximum Shelter Amount|
- All rates are monthly.
- An additional Transportation Supplement is provided to a person with the Persons with Disabilities designation as $52 in cash or as an in-kind bus pass.
- In addition to the support rate, families may also receive a monthly payment for each child under 19 years of age. For more information, see Child Benefits Top-up Supplement.
- Shelter increments continue to increase by an additional $35 for each additional dependant after unit size 10.
- In cases where the family unit consists of a couple where one adult only receives OAS/GIS/Allowance and the Senior's Supplement and the family receives top up from BCEA, the system will automatically deduct these payments. Deductions are first taken from the family’s support portion, then the shelter portion. Any remaining entitlement will be paid by the system [for the OAS/GIS and Senior’s Supplement rates, see Rate Tables – Senior’s Supplement].
