If I apply for ODSP, how do I prove my disability?

5. Get a decision

The looks at the information that you send in and decides whether you meet the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) definition of a “person with a disability”.

They'll let you know by sending you a letter in the mail.

If the Disability Adjudication Unit says that you're a “person with a disability”, they tell your local ODSP office so that ODSP can start to pay you .

If the Disability Adjudication Unit says that you're not a “person with a disability”, you may be able to appeal that decision.

For help appealing the decision, you may want to contact your local community legal clinic.
