    ODSP Application Denied > Appealed > Accepted

    At the urging of my doctor, I applied for ODSP in March of this year and received a letter of denial three days ago. The basis of my application is depression, anxiety, insomnia, calcified bone spur and Polyuria caused by BPH. I am going to be asking for an Internal Review and wondered if anyone here had advice or could just relate their experience applying to the DAU with something similar. Also, I am on Ontario Works and wondering if anyone know what approach Ontario Works takes when one goes to the Social Benefits Tribunal and is refused ODSP.

    For what it's worth, they received my application on March 14th and I got the denial letter on July 3rd -- 81 business days later.

    Not really. I have faxed my request for an Internal Review in nine days ago and am waiting to hear back.

    Just thought I would let you know that I received a reply to my request for an Internal Review yesterday and the original decision was overturned. I've been approved.
