4. Apply for interim assistance if you were on ODSP income support

Interim assistance is financial help you might be able to get while you wait for the Social Benefits Tribunal (SBT) to decide your appeal. But this is only if the decision you’re appealing is about cutting off or reducing your Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) income support.

If the SBT decides that you can get interim assistance, they order your local Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) office to pay it to you.

How to apply

To apply for interim assistance, you complete Part 4 of the Appeal Form

If your application for income support was refused

If you’re appealing a decision refusing your application for income support, you can’t get interim assistance. But you can apply for assistance from Ontario Works (OW) while you wait.
