Can I get child support and also get money from ODSP?

2. Tell ODSP about child support payments

Child support payments don't affect the amount of you get from the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP).

This rule started January 1, 2017. But it only applies to payments that are owed for periods of time that start on January 1, 2017, or after that date.

You still have to tell ODSP about any child support payments that you get.

But ODSP does not count child support payments when they decide if you qualify for income support.

Reporting child support payments when you’re on ODSP

You need to report child support payments to ODSP.

If you get the same amount every month, you don't need to keep reporting it every month.

But if the amount you get goes up or down, you have to tell ODSP. You can do this by giving your caseworker a copy of a new agreement or that shows the change.
