Registered Disability Savings Plan
The RDSP is the Registered Disability Savings Plan, a Canadian Government program to help disabled individuals save for their future. Depending on the disability and income level of the disabled person (or their guardians/parents) the Government will also add allowances and bursaries to the account yearly, up to a lifetime maximum.
The RDSP is a key tool for parents of children with disabilities save for their loved one’s future. Once the child’s disability has been recognized by the CRA, an RDSP can be set up to start saving for the child’s future. The government’s additions will depend on the income level of the parents, the lower the income the more allowances and bursaries are added to the savings account.
