RDSP

Being prepared makes good financial sense.

The Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) helps you save for the long-term financial security of yourself or a loved one. Download our guide to learn how the RDSP can help you.

How it works:

  • Eligibility requirements include approved disability tax credit, Canadian citizenship and SIN #.
  • Every $1 is matched with up to $3 from the government (to a maximum of $3,500 each year, with a lifetime limit of $70,000; grants are paid into the RDSP until the end of the calendar year in which the recipient turns 49 years of age).
  • There is no annual contribution limit, but the lifetime limit is $200,000.
  • Contributions can be made up until the end of the year the beneficiary turns 59.
  • Low income individuals may be eligible for an additional $1000 a year for 20 years.
  • There are no restrictions on how RDSP withdrawals are spent.
  • The RDSP is exempt from most provincial disability and income assistance benefits.
  • RDSP contributions are not tax-deductible, but income earned grows on a tax-deferred basis until the funds are withdrawn. When withdrawn, the amount is taxed as income.
