Let’s Grow Our Savings – The Benefits of an RDSP
March 14, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Did you know that the Government of Canada gives out grants and bonds to eligible RDSP plan holders – even when they don’t have the money to contribute themselves?
Come to this workshop, and learn about the difference between a Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) and other Registered Plans, what’s needed to qualify and how to get enrolled. If you find the process of opening a plan too difficult, or are you having trouble qualifying for the disability tax credit – come to this workshop. You’re not alone! Our experts will advise you on the next steps while sharing case studies of how an RDSP can meet a variety of savings goals. In sum, whether the plan holder is a young child, young adult, or older adult, there is value in opening an RDSP and a significant amount of government support available. This education session will appeal to individuals, family member, caregivers and trustees who are searching for an investment vehicle that supports their goals and does not disrupt other benefits, such as monthly PWD income.
