Tell ODSP about money you make

You must tell ODSP how much money you, your spouse, and your dependants make from:

  • jobs
  • training allowances
  • being self-employed

Dependants are people who live with you and who you financially take care of, for example, your children or elderly parents. Your spouse can be a person of any sex or gender. It does not matter if you are married or not.

ODSP will not count money earned by a dependant who is:

  • a high school student
  • a college or university student
  • younger than 18
  • living in a First Nations community and getting money from an employment training program that lasts up to 12 months
