Allowance instalments are normally deposited directly into your bank account, except for the first. That instalment is made by cheque at the beginning of the study period and delivered by the person responsible for integrating disabled students at the educational institution or an officer with the financial assistance office of your educational institution. All instalments, except the first, are deposited directly into your bank account.
Consequently, you must fill out and send us the Application for Direct Deposit form. If you fail to do so, your allowance instalments will not be made.
Your allowance amounts will be paid to you in two statutory instalments per period of study. Additional instalments may be made following any change request you may make.
No instalment payment is made for an amount of less than $25. In such cases, the amount in question is added to the subsequent instalment. At the end of the last period of study in the award year concerned, no instalments are made for amounts owing of less than $5.
If your allowance is intended to purchase material resources, the full amount will be paid to you in a single lump-sum payment for the period of study.
If, however, the allowance is intended to obtain specialized services or paratransit services, an initial partial instalment will be made and the difference will be paid via direct deposit in the second month of the study period concerned.
The first instalment of each period of study concerned is calculated on the basis of the information in the Recommendation on Types of Assistance Required form, which the person responsible for integrating disabled students at the educational institution has filled out and given to you.
