Amendments to Assured Income for Disability Regulations
On December 15, 2022 the Lieutenant Governor, by and with the advice and consent of Executive Council Order 581/2022 and recommended by the Minister of Social Services amends the The Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability Regulations, 2012 with The Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (Miscellaneous) Amendment Regulations, 2012.
The amendments include replacing the “residency requirements” as defined under Division 2 and includes the definition for a “Saskatchewan resident”. “Saskatchewan Resident” is defined as an individual or family member who is ordinarily present in Saskatchewan.
The amendment also adds an applicant who does not meet any residency requirement may be eligible for benefits if the minister is satisfied that the applicant or a dependent of the applicant is being treated for a medical condition and is unable to leave Saskatchewan; that the applicant or a dependent of the applicant died while in Saskatchewan; that exceptional circumstances exist, and where an applicant who is not a Saskatchewan resident may be eligible for benefits if the minister is satisfied that there are compassionate, compelling or medical reasons.
Other amendments were made to sections regarding: ineligible individuals, budget shortfalls for family units, determination of liquid assets, determining excess assets, approval or denial, temporary benefits, and payment to trustees.
Note the Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) is an income support program for people with significant and enduring disabilities.
