Being taken advantaged of.

My income comes from ODSP, this government service can only send money to my joint bank account, because my mom who is the second user to the joint account can act as my trustee. but because my mom blocked by access to the joint bank account I'am not able to use the money that was deposited to the joint bank account from ODSP. am I being taken advantage of? Is this action my mom is doing illegal in any way?

It depends on your mutual agreement with your mom. You can open another Bank account with you as a sole owner and update your Banking information with the ODSP management.
