Our BC Disability Benefits Help Sheets are our most popular downloads. These self-help guides will explain various benefits and programs, and how to apply for them. Please note: We have updated Help Sheets 2, 3, 7, 12, 13 and 15 to reflect changes made in April 2017 to disability assistance rates and regulations. In July 2017, the new Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction announced that provincial disability assistance rates (PWD) will increase by $100 a month as of September 2017. We will update our Help Sheets to reflect these changes when we have more information. The Help Sheets will be online-only for the time being.
