Procedure for Appeal of Disability Assessment

Procedure for Appeal of Disability Assessment

 If applicants have been deemed ineligible for SAID based on their disability impact assessment, they may appeal the decision to a SAID adjudicator. Applicants that have been denied must submit their appeal in writing to their Ministry of Social Services, Income Assistance Worker.

The Income Assistance worker will then forward the appeal letter to the Ministry’s Eligibility Review Team (MERT) and the applicant’s assessment will reviewed again for possible reconsideration. If the MERT finds that the determination of ineligibility was incorrect, they will deem the applicant eligible and enroll them in SAID. If the MERT finds the determination of ineligibility was correct, the appeal is forwarded on to an independent adjudicator for a review of the assessment and a decision regarding eligibility.
