The Consolidated Verification Process (CVP) is a procedure used to verify ongoing eligibility for social assistance.  A CVP review must be completed every twelve months.  Third party information and file reviews determine whether a case receives an "abbreviated review" or a "full review".  A full CVP review requires an interview with a worker.

 

Keeping track of recipientís changed circumstances and monitoring their participation ensures that only eligible recipients will receive financial assistance and benefits, and that the amount of the assistance and benefits are accurate.

 

When reviewing the budgetary needs of a recipient and benefit unit, the worker will consider any reported changes in:

bullet

family size;

bullet

shelter or accommodation arrangements;

bullet

income sources;

bullet

asset levels;

bullet

residence in or absences from Ontario; and,

bullet

other factors that will affect the level of assistance the recipient is eligible to receive.

 There are three possible results from a CVP Review: 

bullet

there maybe no change in the amount of financial assistance or benefits issued, or to the participation requirements;

bullet

financial assistance and or benefits maybe varied or suspended due to the reported changes in circumstances; or

bullet

the recipient maybe found to be ineligible and financial assistance maybe cancelled due to the new information provided.
