Do you have someone under your care who can't function independently? Do you want to be able to plan for their future?
A Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) can help do that. A registered disability savings plan (RDSP) is a savings plan that is intended to help parents and others save for the long term financial security of a person who is eligible for the disability tax credit (DTC).
Unlike an RRSP, an RDSP is not tax-deductible. But it does have several key features:
- Parents and Grandparents can transfer their RRSP to their child or grandchild's RDSP plan upon their death tax deferred -- the tax wouldn't be owing until the child took it out
- RDSPs don't affect Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH) payments (for owners of Alberta RDSPs)
- Current government matching grants are up to 300% of your contributions -- for example, if you put in $3,500 you could get $10,500 in matching grants
- The Registered Disability Savings Plan can be a very valuable tool in preparing for your disabled child's future!
