Your credit counselor will take a look at your financial situation and help you decide what debt relief solution is best for you. A popular option for debt relief in Ontario is debt consolidation.

One concern, however, is whether or not you can still get debt consolidation while under government assistance. After all, debt doesn’t disappear just because your earning capacity is diminished. Should and can you get approved for debt consolidation in Ontario even when you are government benefits like CERB or ODSP?

What is CERB?

CERB stands for “Canada Emergency Response Benefit” it is a form of financial support that is being given to Canadians in emergency situations. In this case it’s given to those who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In Ontario and elsewhere in Canada, CERB is available to both the employed and self-employed.

CERB during this time of COVID-19

CERB provides $500 a week that can help you financially. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CERB has now extended the assistance for qualified applicants to a maximum of 24 weeks. The general eligibility criteria in Ontario for CERB right now could be any of the following conditions:

  • They have stopped working because of COVID-19
  • They are eligible for Employment Insurance (regular or sickness benefits)
  • They exhausted their Employment Insurance benefits (regular or fishing) during the period of December 29, 2019 to October 3, 2020

There are more qualifications here. After confirming you are qualified for CERB, you will also be able to apply for it on that page.

Debt Consolidation and CERB

Debt consolidation allows you to consolidate multiple forms of debt and pay them off with only one monthly payment. If you go for a debt consolidation loan, you pay your debts by paying the loan. If you decide to use a credit counseling agency, you pay them to pay your creditors.

Even if you are on CERB, you should be able to apply for debt consolidation. The fact that you are unemployed or on CERB won’t show up on your credit record and it won’t impact your credit score. 

As long as you have a good credit score, you should be eligible for a debt consolidation loan and can enroll in either debt management or settlement.  

Keep in mind, however, that debt consolidation isn’t debt forgiveness, you’re still going to need to make monthly repayments. However, these payments – on your debt consolidation loans or to your credit counseling agency – will be lower due to lower interest rates and waivers of late fees. Keep in mind, however, that there will be service fees with your agency.

All in all, with careful budgeting, you can get debt consolidation in Ontario in CERB. 

What is ODSP?

ODSP is the Ontario Disability Support Program, a social assistance program that provides both income and employment support to Ontario residents with disabilities.

ODSP Income Support

This program aims to offer financial aid to pay for a person with disability’s living expenses. It also provides health benefits such as drug and dental coverage. You can calculate how much you are eligible for here

ODSP Employment Support

This program aims to help people with disabilities in Ontario find and keep a job. This is mostly in the form of training and mentoring. Though, if you want to start a business, they also offer financial help.

To apply for these programs, you must have a substantial physical or mental impairment that is continuous or recurrent. This should reduce or restrict your ability to work, take care of yourself, and take part in community life.

Debt Consolidation and ODSP

It is possible to get a loan while in ODSP, the money that you are receiving as part of this program will be treated as income by the lender. So ODSP will actually contribute to your “financial health” along with any other form of income and your credit score. 

Being in ODSP should not hamper you from getting a debt consolidation loan or enrolling in debt management or debt settlement programs. Whatever you get can be used to pay your consolidated debts.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Debt Consolidation is a negotiated debt settlement offer made between you and your creditors with the help of a Debt Relief Agency in Ontario. Some key benefits of Debt Consolidation are interest-free program, no upfront fee required, combined monthly payment into one affordable amount, no lawsuits, and many more.

Yes, your assets are safe from creditors. A licensed debt relief agency in Ontario will help you come up with an offer to your creditors that will make sure your assets will be out of the paper.

No, in fact, this is one of the great advantages of a Debt Consolidation Program. All wage garnishment will stop from the day you filed the proposal.

The effect on your credit score is not going to be severe. Your credit score will most probably go to R7 Rating and will remain in your credit report for another 3 years after you completed the program. This means that it will not be permanent and you will still be able to rebuild your credit score.

 

This varies depending on the proposal you will be discussing with the help of a certified debt relief agency. It is also worth noting that debt consolidation cannot exceed more than 5 years.

If a debt is shared, you need to file a joint debt consolidation offer to your creditors. However, in most cases, in which the debts are individually incurred will have no impact on your spouse.

After three missed payments, your debt arrangement with creditors will be broken and you will end up getting chased again for the original debt amount plus interest.

A debt consolidation offer can be paid off earlier if you can. In this way, you receive your “Certificate of Completion” sooner and you can immediately start rebuilding your credit score.

Let’s Just Put It Simple....... Not All Hero's Wear Caps........I spoke with Suma over a fairly lengthy period of time because of my busy schedule and lack of free time on my part, and she was not only extremely patient and understanding, but also beyond helpful And informative. Any question I had and no matter how many times she had to explain it to me she took her time to make sure I completely understood every single step and process before she moved on to the next thing. I have been so stressed out and worked up about my debt and trying to figure out how to fix it all since I know I will not be returning to work at all in the future because of medical issues and being 26 with that realization makes things just that more stressful but Suma made everything so easy and my payments are $100 a month for less then 5 years with no interest or penalties for early pay off. I’m so glad that I didn’t settle with some other place that was asking for $350 + a month for 7-12 years and paying off early would cost you more.
