Rogers customers please read (discounts for persons with disabilities)

A few days ago, someone on this forum wrote that he had found out that Telus had a discount offer for persons with disabilities. I was disappointed to learn that it was only being offered in B.C. and Alberta. Being a Rogers customer, I decided to research if Rogers had any discounts for persons with disabilities. I was extremely pleased to discover that there’s a hidden 30% discount for Rogers services if you’re on a disability program AND there’s also a separate $20 discount per cell line!!!

I called Rogers and spoke to a customer service representative and she provided me with the following email address accessibilitydiscount@rci.rogers.com

She said that I needed to provide proof of disability. So, I went on My Service Canada Account and signed in.

  • clicked on “Canada Pension Plan/Old Age Security”
  • clicked on “Payments”
  • clicked on “Payment Information”
  • clicked on “2021”
  • clicked on the most recent “Payment Date”
  • scrolled all the way down to the bottom and clicked on “Print an official Proof of Payment Report”

I printed the letter confirming that I was receiving CPP Disability. If you’re receiving disability benefits from a provider other than CPP disability (for example,
The Ontario Disability Support Program)
then you need to find and print a letter from ODSP confirming that you’re receiving disability benefits.

Anyway, I wrote an email to Rogers, attached and sent my confirmation letter to accessibilitydiscount@rci.rogers.com
In the email, I included my Rogers account number, the accountholder’s name, the email my account is registered under and listed all the services I have with Rogers (TV, INTERNET, NUMBER OF CELLPHONES.)

Within a few hours, I received a reply stating that I was approved for a 30% discount for my ignite bundle AND a $20 discount on EACH cellphone (mine, my wife’s and my children’s cellphone!) The Rogers customer service representative reassured me that THESE DISCOUNTS WILL BE VALID INDEFINITELY.

I hope that this information, that I have provided, helps the many persons with disabilities who are struggling financially.

That’s awesome. Thanks a lot for sharing. Also, I will say, I know that Bell offers the same thing. So all big 3 companies (Telus, Bell and Rogers) offer stuff for disabled. Definitely worth asking about!! Don’t pay regular price for your services.
