After we get married; how much will our AISH benefits drop?

How much will our AISH benefits drop after we get married? My fiance and I are concerned that we will not be able to survive on our AISH benefits after we get married.

We have heard we will only be getting $1 000 a month each after we get married.

Thank you for any answers we can receive from this website!!

  2. I’m not sure what the clawback amount is but a reduction would make sense since your housing costs should be reduced.

  4. So your concerned that you wont be able to rip off tax payers after your married ? That’s what you are doing now by claiming to be single to get more money while living together. Stop ripping tax payers off.

  6. If they are both on aish and not living
    Together it’s 1588 each as long as there is no other money being made if one or both of u are working each person is allowed to make 800 before anything is taken off now once u move in together that’s were it changes if one person is working and the other isn’t or one is on aish and the other is not and just working aish will take money off the persons check for whatever there spouse
    Makes if both are on aish and no one is working your benifits stay the same
    Aish feels that once your married it’s no longer there responsibility to support you it’s your spouses hense why if u live with someone and your the only aish reciver they take what your spouse makes and takes that off the aish recipients monthly amount

      You should really look up the info before sending out this kind of information. The allowable income for a single person before they start deducting is $1150 and for a couple where 1 is on AISH and the other is not is $2250. And they don’t deduct anything for a married couple who are both on AISH unles they both or one is working. Then they deduct what is non excempt. They don’t just deduct whatever the spouse makes.

  8. Why not call your caseworker and ask them? That would be the most reliable source to ask.

  10. If you are already living together and being honest to them about it.. your payments will stay the same. If you are not living together then I assume the lower rate wont be as bad as paying rent/mortgage on two places. I guess the right thing to do would be talk to your AISH worker.

    Your cost of living will also go down. You won’t be paying 2x the rent and utilities.

    Yes, but there are a lot of people on AISH that are completely capable of working and choose not to. They sit on their lazy ass, and collect money from the government. AISH is pretty loose with their applicants

    Yep this ^^^ and welfare. Massively abused programs. THATS why the rude comments. This person could be legit and need AISH, but sadly those that abuse it give the program a bad rap. I think that there needs to be a way to regulate this programs better.

    So because people abuse a program it gives everyone the right to dump on them? You don’t know the circumstance and you don’t need to in order to be kind.

    As a Canadian citizen and not a refugee, you mean absolutely nothing to the government and you will be taken care of accordingly. Sad but true 🙁

  21. I would call your worker. And congrats on the wedding! Like others said, if you are already living together and your worker knows this then not much will change, if any because you’re already cohabiting. But if you live together and have NOT told your worker then you should do so immediately because the legal ramifications can be very difficult.
    Otherwise, if your moving in together after you’re married then just let your worker know and simply figure it out along the way together if your aish payments drop a bit. ❤️
