One-time Payment to Persons with Disabilities

 

 

One-time payment to persons with disabilities

Dear Members of the Association,

Rick Saville of Victoria Division drew our attention to a public notice issued by the federal government titled One-Time payment to persons with disabilities.

The webpage contains the following introduction,

“You do not have to apply for the one-time payment, it will be automatically issued to:

  • holders of a valid Disability Tax Credit certificate, and
  • beneficiaries as at July 1, 2020 of:
    • Canada Pension Plan Disability
    • Quebec Pension Plan Disability Pension, or
    • one of the disability supports provided by Veterans Affairs Canada

If you are eligible but never applied for the Disability Tax Credit, or your certificate expired in 2019, you must do so by September 25, 2020.

We expect to issue the payments beginning this fall. The payment information will be provided on this page once available.”

The webpage, (with a great deal more information and answers to virtually any question you may have),  may be viewed by clicking here.


Sgt. Kim Hendricken was asked about this program and she has provided the following comments,

“The URL gives the full details on the one time $600 disability payment through COVID 19.

This is being led by ESDC and not VAC.

I have highlighted some points for you.

The $600 diability payment is non taxable and there is no need to apply.

Payments are expected beginning this fall. The payment information will be provided on the noted URL.

Please do not direct questions to me. They need to be directed to ESDC and the website.

Eligibility

Individuals who are eligible for the one-time payment:

  • individuals who have an existing valid Disability Tax Credit (DTC) certificate
  • persons who are eligible for the DTC and who apply for it by September 25, 2020
  • beneficiaries as at July 1, 2020 of either:
    • Canada Pension Plan Disability Quebec Pension Plan Disability Pension, or
    • one of the following disability supports provided by Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC):
      • Disability Pension
      • Disability Award
      • Pain and Suffering Compensation
      • Critical Injury Benefit
      • Rehabilitation Services and Vocational Assistance Program
      • Income Replacement Benefit, and/or
      • Canadian Forces Income Support

Any deductions?:

If you received the $300 OAS Covid payment then this amount will be subtracted from the $600 disability payment and

If you received the $200 GIS Covid Payment then this amount will be subtracted from the $600 disability payment.

How to apply?

You do not have to apply to receive this payment. The payment consists of a one-time, non-taxable and non-reportable amount of $600.

Thanks Kim
