If you earn more than $1,000 in a month

ODSP reduces the money they give you if:

  • you have a disability, and
  • you earn more than $1,000 in take-home pay in a month.

They reduce it by 75% of the amount you earn above $1,000.

For example, if your take-home pay is $1,500 in a month, ODSP will not count the first $1,000. But they will reduce the money they give you by 75% of the remaining $500.

$1,500 (take-home pay)
– $1,000 (earnings exemption)
$500 (ODSP reduces your monthly amount by 75% of this)
x .75
$370 (ODSP takes this much from your monthly amount)

When your spouse or dependants earn money

This rule applies to people in your household who:

They can earn up to $200 in take-home pay before ODSP reduces the amount you get.

If they earn more than $200, ODSP reduces the amount you get by 50% of what they earn over $200.

For example, if they earn $250, your ODSP payment will go down by half of $50, which is $25.
