A woman came to us after she could not reach her ODSP case worker for two months. The woman was receiving Employment Insurance benefits of $295 per week, which were deducted from her monthly ODSP cheque of $1,842, but they had ended two months earlier. Despite this, the ODSP continued to take deductions from her cheque.

The woman was receiving Employment Insurance benefits of $295 per week, which were deducted from her monthly ODSP cheque of $1,842, but they had ended two months earlier. Despite this, the ODSP continued to take deductions from her cheque.

An Ombudsman staff member contacted an ODSP manager, who determined that the woman’s worker had gone on maternity leave and no one had taken responsibility for her files. As a result, the ODSP reimbursed the woman $1,800 for the erroneous deductions.
