Community Update: New and Updated Help Sheets

DABC often receives phone calls and emails from people who are about to turn 65 and are wondering about the transition from provincial disability benefits to old age benefits. To explain this process, DABC advocates have created a new Help Sheet: #12B: Transition from PWD Benefits to Old Age Benefits.

What was previously Help Sheet #12 (Income Assistance Application Process for People with Disabilities), has been renamed Help Sheet #12A.
