 Additional $250 a Month for Disability Funding Program an Election Priority for DISC

REGINA – In the upcoming provincial election, the Saskatchewan Disability Income Support Coalition (DISC) is asking all candidates, no matter their political affiliation, to advocate for an increase to the Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) funding program by $250 per month per person in order to reach a meaningful, socially acceptable level of income for people with disabilities.

“An extra $250 would mean all the difference to SAID recipients,” said DISC Chair Judy Hannah. “We are hoping this is an issue that all political candidates will take very seriously and adopt into their platforms leading up to and beyond election night.”

SAID is an income support program for people with significant and enduring disabilities. While previous increases to the SAID program have allowed recipients to enjoy a greater quality of life than in the past, the rapidly increasing cost of living in the province has affected SAID recipients in many ways.

Hannah noted that many of these people on the program have special dietary requirements and must eat a healthy diet, but purchasing the ingredients to make wholesome meals is often beyond their price range. SAID recipients are frequently forced to inconvenience their friends and family to get rides due to high transportation costs. Many recipients can’t even keep a roof over their heads due to the absence of housing that is both accessible and affordable. The struggle to afford even these necessities means SAID recipients are forced to live month to month and are unable to save any money, which can be devastating if an unexpected emergency arises.

“An extra $250 would allow SAID recipients to afford the basic necessities of life, save for a rainy day and be able to have the money to go out for coffee with friends, visit family or even buy a Christmas present – things we all take for granted, but are not available to many people on SAID,” said Hannah.

DISC has unveiled a new video that explores the lives of people with disabilities relying on SAID funding. To view the video, visit www.saskdisc.ca.

DISC will be hosting two all-candidate forums in March, in Regina and Saskatoon, where it invites the public, media and all parties running for office to attend for a meaningful discussion about providing an adequate level of funding for people with significant and enduring disabilities. The first forum is scheduled for 7-9 p.m. on March 3 at the Broadway Theatre in Saskatoon (715 Broadway Ave). This will be followed by the Regina forum on March 10 from 7-9 p.m. at the Glencairn Neighbourhood Recreation Centre (2626 Dewdney Ave E).

The Saskatchewan Disability Income Support Coalition was formed by a large cross section of disability advocates, consumers and organizations across Saskatchewan that are committed to advocating for a respectful, dignified and adequate income support system.

DISC Seeking Additional $250 a Month for Disability Funding Program

MEDIA RELEASE

For Immediate Release                                                                                                              June 23, 2015

DISC Seeking Additional $250 a Month for Disability Funding Program

REGINA – With the cost of living continuing to escalate in Saskatchewan, people with disabilities are having difficulties making ends meet. That is why the Saskatchewan Disability Income Support Coalition (DISC) is asking the provincial government to increase the funding to the Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) program by $250 a month per person.

“In 2011, Premier Brad Wall stated it was the Saskatchewan Party government’s ‘vision and goal to make our province the very best place in Canada to live for those with disabilities.’ While major steps have been taken toward this goal, increasing SAID funding by $250 per month will help us reach the next level in quality of life,” said DISC Chair Judy Hannah.

DISC brings together 38 disability advocacy organizations and individuals to speak with one voice in support of a more respectful income program, with increased funding for people living with disabilities. DISC was part of the Government and Community Task Team that launched SAID in 2009.

Currently, a single person with a disability receives, on average, $1300 per month from social assistance. This leaves the single person with a disability on welfare supporting him or herself on roughly $43 a day. Whether it means finding a wheelchair accessible apartment, paying for paratransit, or spending extra money on medication or healthy food to adhere to a doctor-ordered diet, it does not take long for this money to disappear.

“We already know that low oil prices are beginning to have an impact on the province’s economy. That impact is even more significant among Saskatchewan’s must vulnerable populations,” Hannah said. “Increasing funding by $250 will provide disabled people with the financial ability to cover the costs of the basic necessities to live.”

A recent survey conducted by the Canadian Mental Health Association indicated there is substantial public support for increased funding to people with severe and long-term disabilities. Approximately 39% of 2,237 people surveyed throughout the province indicated that $2,000 per month was a socially acceptable amount of funding for these individuals.

“The results of this survey indicate that more adequate funding is required for people with severe and long-term disabilities to have a life with dignity,” said Dave Nelson, CEO of the Saskatchewan Branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association.

DISC was formed by a large cross section of disability advocates, consumers and organizations across Saskatchewan who are committed to advocating for a respectful, dignified and adequate income support system. DISC members have joined together to speak as one voice, working towards a distinct (or separate) income system for people with disabilities that will be built on our common vision and principles.

PROVINCE CELEBRATES AS SAID PROGRAM TURNS 10,000

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Government of Saskatchewan

PROVINCE CELEBRATES AS SAID PROGRAM TURNS 10,000

More than 10,000 Saskatchewan people with long-term and enduring disabilities now have a better quality of life thanks to enrollment in the Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability program (SAID).

“I am so pleased that we are helping improve the quality of life of these 10,000 Saskatchewan citizens,” Social Services Minister June Draude said.  “The SAID program supports our government’s goal to make Saskatchewan the best place in Canada to live for people with disabilities, and we are deeply committed to supporting this important program for many years to come.”

“I want to thank the Government of Saskatchewan for helping us to help these 10,000 people realize the dignity and independence that they deserve,” Program Implementation Advisory Team (PIAT) Chair Merv Bender said.  “This is a wonderful achievement when you consider that there were only about 2,700 people enrolled in SAID when the program started back in 2009.”

In addition to expanding enrollment, there were also substantial increases to the benefits that SAID members receive.

On top of the $50 increase in January 2012, average benefits are being increased over four years by $100 per month for those living in residential care; $350 per month for those in independent living arrangements; and $400 per month for couples who are living independently.

The first stage of these increases was implemented last June with single individuals receiving an additional $200 per month, couples receiving an additional $230 per month and people in residential care receiving $40 more per month.  This summer, the second stage of SAID increases will be implemented across the province.

SAID features a new benefit structure that combines some allowances available under the Saskatchewan Assistance Plan (SAP) into a Living Income, further distinguishing SAID as a different program of income support than welfare.  This structure was recommended by the Task Team on Income Support for People with Disabilities.

The SAID program was introduced in October 2009 in collaboration with members of the disability community with the goal of providing a dignified income support program for persons with significant and enduring disabilities separate from SAP.  This collaboration will continue on the further development of SAID.

SAID Fact Sheet

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Check out the updated SAID fact sheet HERE

*text of factsheet to follow*
<Text of fact sheet>
Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID)
Saskatchewan Ministry of Social Services
What is the SAID program?
SAID is an income support program for people with significant and
enduring disabilities. SAID has been developed collaboratively by the
disability community and government.
What is the vision of the SAID program?
Saskatchewan citizens with significant and enduring disabilities
have access to an assured income program based on the impact of a
person’s disability, offering the dignity of greater choice of services
and increasing a person’s participation in community. Continued
collaboration between government and the disability community as the
SAID program is developed ensures Saskatchewan is the best place to
live in Canada for citizens with a disability.
Who is eligible?
• A person who is a Saskatchewan resident,
• Is 18 years of age or older,
• Lacks the financial resources to provide for their basic needs, and
• Has a significant and enduring disability that:
— is likely to be of a permanent or indefinite nature, either
continuously or periodically for extended periods,
— substantially impacts daily living activities, and
— requires the person to use an assistive aid, device, or service
animal or human supports.
How can I apply for SAID?
• If you have a disability and are receiving Saskatchewan Assistance
Program (SAP) benefits, you can apply by completing an application
and assessment package. To obtain an application and assessment
package, please contact your Income Assistance Worker.
• If you are not receiving income support through SAP and think
you might be eligible for SAID, please call the SAID inquiry line at:
1-888-567-SAID (7243) for more information or visit the nearest
Ministry of Social Services office.

How is SAID different from the Saskatchewan Assistance Program (SAP)?
Some of the key differences between SAID and SAP include:
• Benefits – the benefits for SAID are higher than for SAP. Effective June 1, 2012, SAID
benefits are $90/month higher for persons in residential care settings, $200/month
higher for singles living independently, and $230/month higher for couples living
independently.
• Benefit Structure – as recommended by the Task Team on Income Support for People
with Disabilities, SAID benefits include three main components:
1. The Living Income is a fixed amount of monthly income that allows beneficiaries
the opportunity to make decisions and have more control over how to spend their
income. Participants make decisions on how much to spend on shelter, food, and
other items.
2. The Disability Income is intended to assist with costs related to the impact of
disability.
3. The Exceptional Need Income is to assist with a number of special circumstances.
For example, additional income is available for clothing recommended by a health
professional, special food items, food and grooming costs associated with service
animals, and homecare.
• The presence of a significant and enduring disability is determined by a Disability
Impact Assessment. SAID beneficiaries are supported by Assured Income Specialists
who are available in 20 service centres across the province and provide the following
services:
— Help with applications
— Case planning support
— Referrals to other organizations that provide services
— Identifying other Ministry programs for which the person may be eligible
What types of health benefits are available for SAID beneficiaries?
• Once eligibility is determined, SAID beneficiaries may be eligible for supplementary
health coverage through the Ministry of Health.
• Call 1-800-266-0695 (Regina 787-3124) for enquiries about prescription drugs, dental
and optical services, the hearing aid plan and other medical services.
