Help Sheet 13 • Rate Amounts for PWD and PPMB Benefits

If your rent is $375 or more, you will not receive any extra money from the Ministry for your phone or other bills.

Allowable costs

If you rent your home, and your rent does not exceed the shelter maximum, the Ministry may pay for the following utility costs:

  • 1.

    Heating fuel

  • 2.

    Fuel for cooking meals

  • 3.

    Water

  • 4.

    Hydro

  • 5.

    Garbage disposal provided by a company each week or every two weeks

  • 6.

    Rental of one basic residential single-line telephone (includes a cell phone).

If you own your home, shelter costs also include:

  • 1.

    House insurance premiums

  • 2.

    Property taxes

  • 3.

    The actual cost of maintenance and repairs for the family home if it is owned by

a person in the family unit. These costs must first be approved by the Ministry.

If the costs for your utilities, like phone and hydro change, MSDSI may set its own av- erage winter and summer rates. The winter period begins on October 1 and ends on March 31, and the summer period begins on April 1 and ends on September 30.
