If you earn more than $200 in a month

If your take-home pay is more than $200 in a month, ODSP reduces the money they give you. They reduce it by half the amount of what you earn above $200.

For example, if your take-home pay is $260 in a month, ODSP will not count the first $200. But they will reduce the money they give you by half of the remaining $60.

$260 (take-home pay)
- $200 (earnings exemption)
$60 (ODSP reduces your monthly amount by half of this)
÷ 2
$30 (ODSP reduces your monthly amount by this much)
