Shelter Benefits Cut for Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) Beneficiaries
By ending the exemption of the Saskatchewan Rental Housing Supplement from extra shelter benefits, the maximum that a single Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) beneficiary can receive for rent is $715 per month in Regina and Saskatoon and less in smaller centres. While additional benefits were grandfathered, no new recipients or those with a change in circumstance, including a move, are covered.
SAID Cut to Seniors
By ending the exemption of the Seniors Income Plan and the Guaranteed Income Supplement from SAID benefits, very few seniors will be eligible for a top up or supplementary health coverage.
Saskatchewan Employment Supplement (SES) Cut
SES is a benefit for low-income working families with children. With the exception of those who have been grandfathered, households will no longer receive the benefit for children who are 13 or over.
