For the following clients/applicants who have been determined to be eligible, may receive the Transitional Assistance rate based on the criteria below, and upon receipt of a Medical Report:
- Single person households 19-54 years of age living in the parental home
- Two person households 19-54 years of age living in the parental home
For these households, one member must have a Medical Report stating he/she is unable to work for six months or more; or is seven months or more pregnant.
Through the use of this form, the physician assesses the individual's health. Social Development assesses the impact of the medical condition on the individual's ability to work. The client's ability to participate in training programs has no impact on the rate of assistance.
For clients receiving the Transitional Assistance rate because of a Medical Report, if subsequent Medical Reports are for less than six months, the Transitional Assistance rate will remain in effect if there is no break in the time period covered by the reports.
Clients may be entitled to the Transitional Assistance rate for reasons other than the Medical Report - see Rate Determination.
