Did you know?

Direct bank deposit is the easiest way for you to receive your Ontario Works payments.

Instead of receiving a cheque, the money you are eligible to receive would be deposited directly into your bank account each month.

To receive your payment securely and quickly, speak to your caseworker about enrolling in direct bank deposit.

Ontario Works issues income support payments monthly.

To help you get your income support for the beginning of each month, payments are made available to you on the last business day of the previous month.

For example, February 2018 payments are made available on January 31, 2018.
