How do I qualify?

 

Everyone’s situation is unique. In order for us to determine if you may qualify for assistance, we need to conduct an assessment. The Eligiblity Assessment is completely free and should take less than thirty minutes of your time. Once your information has been submitted we will respond to your request within two to three business days.

Can I apply on behalf of my child, or other family member?

 

Yes, it’s not uncommon to assist a family member. If you are applying on behalf of your child, there are additionals supplements you could be eligible to receive such as the Canada Child Disability Benefit and Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP), in addition to the disability tax credit.

I have low or no income, can I still qualify?

 

Yes. If you have a low income, you can still qualify for the disability tax credit and Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP). In order to make use of the non-refundable tax credits you will need to transfer your credits to a family member, if possible. Once approved for the Disability Tax Credit and RDSP, low income individuals are also eligible for a government bond of $1,000 a year, for up to twenty years ($20,000).

My doctor (or someone else) told me I wouldn’t qualify, should I still contact you?

 

Yes. It’s not uncommon for a doctor to assume their patient will not qualify, when in fact they do. The criteria in order to qualify has changed quite a bit over the years. We’d like to assume that doctor’s do the best they can when informing patients but it may be unreasonable to expect them to keep up to date with changes regarding eligibility for benefit programs. This is one of the reasons we do, what we do. We will communicate with and educate your doctor or anyone else who may have misconceptions about your eligibility.

I think I may already be approved, should I still contact you?

 

Yes. It’s not uncommon to find individuals who have already been approved for the disability tax credit but are not making any or full use of the benefits available to them. It’s also not uncommon to find individuals who believe they have already approved, but in fact are not.
