Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) and Saskatchewan Employment Supplement (SES) cuts

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.
