Major ODSP Changes for the Injured

August 14, 2017

Beginning August 1, 2017, settlements or awards in respect of claims for future medical care and/or pain and suffering are now fully exempt from consideration for ODSP eligibility.

Over the past year, McKellar Structured Settlements has been working closely with the Ministry of Community and Social Services to bring about changes to the way Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) treats disabled individuals who receive personal injury awards.  The Ontario government has listened and responded favourably to our request by making a substantial change in the way ODSP views personal injury settlements.  ODSP recipients will benefit substantially from the change.

We look forward to providing you with more details in the near future.  In the meantime, please call 1-800-265-8381 or email us with any questions.
