3. Get ready to meet with a lawyer or legal worker

A lawyer or legal worker at a community legal clinic may be able to:

  • help you understand what the rules are about getting income support from the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP)
  • help you gather evidence to show that you meet the ODSP definition of a person with a disability
  • explain your legal rights and responsibilities
  • help you solve a problem by talking to your ODSP worker for you
  • let you know how long it might take if you have to appeal a decision about ODSP income support

When you talk to a lawyer or legal worker, it’s important to show them any documents that relate to your problem, including letters from the ODSP office or the Disability Adjudication Unit.
