Applying for ODSP Benefits
Contact the Cornwall ODSP office, which is located on the 3rd floor of 4 Montreal Road. If you need special help, (for example, a sign language interpreter, large print
forms, etc.) let the office know, so that they can make arrangements.   

At your first meeting, a worker will go over, in detail, how much money you make
and how many bills you have to pay. If you qualify financially for ODSP, you will be
given a Disability Determination Package, which includes four forms:

1.  Health Status Report (This form is filled out by medical professionals.)

2.  Activities of Daily Living Index (This form is filled out by medical professionals.)

3.  A Medical Consent Form. (This form gives your doctor or medical professional
permission to release medical information about you to the ODSP staff.)

4. A Self Report (This form lets you explain what it is like to live with your
disability.)  

Once you have filled out the forms, you must send them to the Disability
Adjudication Unit (DAU).
