Reassessment:

Confirmed Survivors who are currently at a level 1 or a level 2, may request reassessment of their health status once per fiscal year or more frequently if there is an urgent need. Click here to download the application.

 

EMAF:

There is no limit as to how many applications you may submit as the Administrator has removed the yearly submission deadline date to make the process easier for you. Please submit a new application whenever you wish; however, the Administrator requests that you accumulate $500 worth of expenses before sending in your application unless it creates a financial hardship for you. Click here to download the application.

 

You may also call the Administrator at 1-877-507-7706 (TTY: 1-877-627-7027) or by email to  info@tsspcanada.ca to have any of the forms sent to you by mail or email.
