Are there any other perks with this pension? Like assistance with certain bills, rental assistance, travel concessions, etc?
Well I am already in subsidized housing and I was really lucky to get a wonderful, modified (large bathroom to fir a wheelchair if I need with safety bars around the tub and lowered counters and stove in the kitchen) but small apartment in a senior's building. No drugs, no alcohol problems. It is very quiet, safe, clean, modern and friendly. Also very close to transportation. Because I am in subsidized housing they pay a percentage of my electric bill. Some people in subsidized housing have their hydro included in the rent. Since I pay mine separately they help with the bill.
In the winter I get extra money for transportation but that is not granted in the summer when it is easier for me to get around on my own.
Going on disability changes none of that but I get a huge monthly allowance for personal expenses.
