Did you know?

Direct bank deposit is the safe and easy way to receive ODSP or Ontario Works payments each month.

Instead of receiving a cheque, the money you are eligible to receive can be deposited directly and securely into your bank account.

A reloadable payment card is an option if you don’t have a bank account. There’s no need to travel to cash or deposit the cheque. It reduces office visits and helps stop the spread of COVID-19.

Call your caseworker to enrol.

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 2020 payments are made available on January 31, 2020.
