Do not complete and sign the SOI before the 16th of each month as all income must be declared from the 16th of the previous month to the 15th of the current month.
The SOI can be dropped off at the closest OW office or mailed to the office location indicated on the SOI.
If you have more than two members of your family that are working, either request an additional SOI form from reception or copy the one you receive in order to record all earnings of all family members.
If your Statement of Income is not received by the 16th of each month, or if it is not complete or correct, there may be a delay in your Ontario Works Financial Assistance.
If you are not sure how to report your income, contact your Case Manager.
1. You are not required to submit a Statement of Income (SOI) if you have been advised by your Case Manager. This may occur if:
You do not have any income or earnings to report
Your income does not change on a monthly basis (Canada Pension Plan, Support payments that are the same each month, roomer or boarder income etc.)
2. You must continue, or start, to submit a Statement of Income (SOI) on the 16th of each month, if:
You have a new source of income (attach your income stubs to your SOI)
You have ongoing earnings and/or training allowances (attach your pay stubs to your SOI)
You have casual earnings from employment (attach your pay stubs to your SOI)
You have income that changes amounts on a monthly basis
