Privacy protection

 

Hi there!  It’s Donna and thank you for allowing me to come into your inbox.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to my tip on privacy protection.

 

Privacy protection

We are constantly striving to protect ourselves from scams and scammers, but most of all we need to ensure that our privacy, confidentiality, and independence are kept safe from prying eyes and those who thrive on destroying our right to these precious commodities.

 

You have mortgage papers to complete

Yes!  At the best of times, these papers are extremely tedious for anyone to complete let alone a vision impaired person.

So many personal details are required and yes!  Your date of birth is required.

Additionally, other personal details such as banking info.

Warning!  If your date of birth falls into the wrong hands then just imagine what the one who stumbles on it can do with it!

They can use your date of birth to help themselves to your personal details and there goes your privacy and independence.

 

You could ask your real estate agent to provide you with the necessary papers in an electronic format so that you could at least read it for yourself but when it comes to the completion of the necessary forms then here is where you would most likely need sighted assistance.

 

The safest thing to do would be for you to ask your real estate agent to read them to you and if not, you need to find a trusted person; friend or family member or neighbour.

 

That’s it from me for this week.

pletion of an application for CPP or Old Age

Sure!  You are told that you can do this online but as of now the website is not user friendly enough for you to do this.

So what do you do?

 

You need to go to your nearest Service Canada office.

Take a trusted friend, family member, or neighbour with you.

Upon arrival, let the agent know that you wish them to assist you complete your forms.

They may ask the one accompanying you to assist but be firm and let them know that you wish them to help you.

Take your Social Insurance Number card so that you can show it to them and any other photo ID in case you are asked for this.

Take your cheque book along with you so that they can take the info from your cheque to complete the form.

You would need to provide a void cheque and ask them to assist you with this.

They are usually very good at rendering assistance.

 

As of now, the website may not be completely usable for those who are vision impaired and the forms may still  not be in electronic format.

CALL 1 800 O-Canada (1-800-622-6232), from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
