Do you know Nathan? He looks like the hundreds of other kids who step through the doors of the neighborhood elementary school every morning. Sure, his books and folders are thrown haphazardly into his schoolbag, and more often than not he is running to make it through the doors on time, but Nathan looks pretty average.
You can’t see it by looking at him. But it sure is there. Nathan has a disability.
Have you seen Allison? You pass her on your commute to work. Well-dressed, Allison purposefully makes her way to her daily job at the office, like hundreds of other diligent employees that crisscross towards their offices in skyscrapers that mark the hustling business district. Well, you do see her most days, but you wouldn’t have noticed her. She just looks pretty average. There are some days, though, that you definitely don’t see her. That’s because some days, Allison doesn’t get out of bed. She calls in sick instead.
You can’t see it by looking at her. But it sure is there. Allison has a disability.
A child like Nathan appears perfectly normal but with his learning disability, his ability to make proper judgments is severely hindered. An adult like Allison appears perfectly normal but with her diagnosed mental health issues, daily tasks can seem insurmountable.
Though difficult to quantify, the Canada Revenue Agency recognizes these limitations on daily activities as a disability and offers the very valuable Disability Tax Credit (DTC). The DTC opens the door to other benefits: increased credits, child disability benefits, and an RDSP (registered disability savings plan). In order to qualify, however, proof of disability is required.
That is where DFAC (Disability Financial Assistance Corporation) steps in. At DFAC, we understand your disability and we understand the Canada Revenue Agency’s requirements. Your paperwork is our specialty. We compile the necessary documentation to enable you to receive all the benefits you deserve.
Are you or someone you know struggling with a disability? Perhaps it’s a physical deficiency, ASD or severe vision impairment. Perhaps it’s a learning disability, ADD or ADHD. Or perhaps it’s in the mental health arena—dementia, schizophrenia or depression. If your day-to-day activities are affected, you may be eligible to receive government benefits.
