Does my child qualify for the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) ?

Inheritance and ODSP explained

Practice Areas

Wills & Henson Trust

A Henson Trust provides financial security for families with a family member with disabilities or special needs.

Disability Tax Credits

The disability amount is a non-refundable tax credit that reduces the amount of income tax people with disabilities, or people supporting them, may have to pay.

ODSP Benefits

This program which is often called the Disability Pension is available to people who are over 18 years of age and to those who meet a very closely regulated set of criteria.

Ken is a Henson Trust specialist, helping provide peace of mind for families with a family member with disabilities or special needs.

The Ken Pope Approach

Personal Assessment

Ken will meet with you, either online or in person, to discuss your situation. During this assessment period, Ken will address any concerns or questions you may have, until you are comfortable to move forward. Fill out our family evaluation form to get started.

Will the Henson Trust be valuable to you and your family

Having this Trust set up for your child will ensure that once you (and your spouse, if applicable) are gone, your child will receive the inheritance and will also continue to receive ODSP payments.

Ongoing Service

Ken will continue to pay close attention to your needs, and re-evaluate your estate planning strategies, should the legislation change and ultimately affect you and your family
