What financial support is available for people with disabilities during COVID-19?

11, 09-2020

If you are on Income Assistance, Disability Assistance, Comforts Allowance or the BC Senior's Supplement, and not  on the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit or Employment Insurance, you will automatically receive an extra $300 a month for April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November and December. You do not need to do anything to receive this money as it will be added to your usual payment. 

If you are on disability assistance, you will also automatically receive an extra $52 transportation supplement beginning in April and continuing until BC Translink resumes charging fares.
