If you’re referring to ontario disability (odsp) then it’s going to be an uphill battle.
Basically theyll treat you as if you’re scamming the system, and if you are approved, god forbid if you forget to send in whatever random form they send you, otherwise you’ll be cut off and have to fight them to get back on. I’ve seen this happen to too many people.
Yet, if you’re a drug addict or alcoholic or have agoraphobia, you’re set! But if you suffer from pain, you’re just a scammer to them.
Also, Ontario disability only pays $1100 per month. Who the f can live on that? Sure if you have a wife and kids you’ll get more, but your spouse’s income will be used to claw back you payments
Any assets you have, other than your house, car or furniture (IE savings or retirement funds) will have to be cashed in.
I thought about disability, but for now I’m just going to tough it out until I can’t anymore, since disabled people are treated like garbage here.
There should really be some kind of compensation fund for people who get messed up by shitty docs, but nooo you’ve gotta fight them for years in court, possibly lose and have to pay their legal bills. Hell, there’s even a law in Ontario that doctors can apologize for messing you up, but it can’t be used as evidence against them!!! WTF??
Sorry for the long rant, but if you’re in Ontario, don’t become disabled
