MSDSI announces changes to asset levels and cash gift exemptions for PWD recipients

The Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation announced today that effective December 1st, it will be raising the allowable asset levels for PWD recipients to $100,000 for a single person and $200,000 for a couple where both people have the PWD designation. In addition, people receiving provincial disability benefits will be able to accept cash gifts without there being any effect on their eligibility for PWD.

DABC is thrilled by this news and congratulates the Province for making these favourable changes .
