How Do I Apply for AISH?

Government increases AISH rate – April 1, 2012
Effective April 1, 2012, the maximum AISH living allowance will increase from $1,188 to $1,588. You can now earn up to $800 per month from employment while on AISH to supplement this amoung (for single clients) and up to $1,950 for families.

The Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH) program provides financial and health-related assistance to eligible adults with a disability (mental or physical). The disability must be permanent and substantially limit the person’s ability to earn a living.

AISH clients may also be eligible to receive supplemental assistance (a child benefit and personal benefits) through the AISH program. AISH health benefits and supplemental assistance may also assist a client’s cohabiting partner and dependent children.

All the FORMS you need to APPLY FOR AISH are posted on the Government of Alberta website, HERE.
