Learn about the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP)

The Richmond Centre for Disability (RCD) is offering free RDSP Information Sessions. Join us to learn about the RDSP, the Canadian Disability Savings Grant and the Canada Disability Savings Bond.

The RDSP helps Canadians with disabilities and their families save for the future. You should consider opening an RDSP if you have a long-term disability and are under age 60 (you must apply before the end of the calendar year in which you turn 59); a Canadian resident with a Social Insurance Number (SIN); eligible for the Disability Tax Credit; and looking for a long-term savings plan.

-To help you save, the Government will pay a matching Canada Disability Savings Grant of up to $3,500 a year on your contributions.
-The Government will also pay a Canada Disability Savings Bond of up to $1,000 a year into the RDSPs of low-income and modest-income Canadians. 
-No contributions are necessary to receive the bond. Grants and bonds are paid into the RDSP until the year the beneficiary turns 49 years old. 
-Money paid out of an RDSP will not affect your eligibility for federal benefits, and will have little or no impact on provincial or territorial social assistance payments.
