Severe and Permanent Disability Benefit - Eligibility


You may be eligible for the Severe Permanent Disability Benefit if:

  • you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident (for Ontario student loans to be considered for the Severe Permanent Disability Benefit, you must reside in Canada);
  • you have a severe permanent disability that prevents you from working and participating in post-secondary school studies on a full- or part-time basis; and
  • your severe permanent disability is expected to prevent you from performing these activities for the rest of your life.

To find out if you are eligible to receive this benefit, contact the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC) at 1-888-815-4514 and request to have your call forwarded to the Canada Student Loans Program (CSLP). TTY service is available (819-994-1218 or toll-free 1-866-667-8554).
