Attention all third party referring agents and agencies. Please ensure you are properly working with all dedicated SAEO support agents especially if you are working with discretionary funds through Provincial Agencies. Ensure the SAEO agent is aware you are working with the OW / ODSP / OSS / CPP funding as it is a billing issue. We are all here to help and ensure those in need are getting what they require to get a hand up with the proper support systems in place. It only slows the process with contacting, tracking, and in the end billing. So many third parties are there to help and aid the Provincial Agents, and we thank you all for continuing to help those in need.
