SAID Update – Attention Income Assistance Clients

We are sharing the following statement that is now posted to the government’s SAID web page:

 ATTENTION INCOME ASSISTANCE CLIENTS

All Income Assistance clients will continue to receive their benefits.

Effective March 19, 2020, Income Assistance has lessened reporting requirements across all of its programs. This means that if a client is late reporting certain information, Income Assistance will still process the payment so that the client receives it on or before April 1, 2020. This is a temporary measure in place to respond to the current situation.

If you need assistance, you can apply online at saskatchewan.ca/income-support. If you can’t apply online or if you need immediate help, please call the Client Service Centre at 1-866-221-5200 or your local Income Assistance office. We ask for your patience, as we are getting a very high number of calls.

A “call back’ option is typically available between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. without clients losing their place in the queue.

To minimize in-person contact, please do not come into our offices unless it is an emergency and you are unable to call your worker, or you are asked to come in.

We realize this is a difficult time. We are continuing to work hard to meet your needs.

For up to date information on Coronavirus, visit saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus.
