If you earn up to $1,000 in a month

ODSP will not reduce the money they give you if:

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

The amount you can earn before ODSP reduces your benefit is called an earnings exemption.

Take-home pay means the money that is left after your employer takes off things like taxes. It is usually the amount that goes into your bank account from your paycheque.

Take-home pay is also called net earnings.
