It is very hard to find a very specific definition of the disability; it is the symptoms and the conditions under which people with disabilities can be identified. According to the definition of World Health Organization,Guest Posting “the condition of the disability can be defined as an umbrella term, covering impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions. An impairment is a problem in body function or structure; an activity limitation is a difficulty encountered by an individual in executing a task or action; while a participation restriction is a problem experienced by an individual in involvement in life situations. Thus disability is a complex phenomenon, reflecting an interaction between features of a person’s body and features of the society in which he or she lives.” In this way this situation can be both physical as well as mental.


These impaired persons find themselves dependent on others and the burden of treatment impacts more to the family members. Such people are not productive in their personal and professional lives. To compensate this negative impact, these people aspire to get some external support by the government and family members as well. Probably, the middle class and lower middle class families suffer much due to lack of financial resources for the treatment. So the government has launched several ambitious beneficiary programs for the people with disability to help them out.


Some of the direct welfare programs of disability are disability tax credit (that reduces the burden of income tax), registered disability saving plan (for the long term future saving), Canada pension plan for disability benefits, registered rehabilitation assistance program, federal excise gasoline tax refund program, grant for students with permanent disabilities, Canada student loan program-permanent benefit, etc. People living with disabilities can go for these programs after proving their eligibility proof. They are also provided several grants for personal and business use. These grants can be accessed in the form of medical bills, adapted computers for the blind, assistive items such as glasses, wheel chairs, hearing materials, and other day-to-day used devices.


To avail these disability benefits, one has to prove his/her eligibility, first. Those people with disabilities are included in the purview are eligible to consume these welfare programs. There are some online expert guidance and counseling helps available to assist these affected people. These authorized organizations assess each and every claim of the candidate to ensure whether it is worthy to find claim.
