Join us to help spread the word about
#RDSPAwareness Month!

 

Everyone deserves a chance to save for the future, but sadly health and social inequities often get in the way. The Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) is one tool that is helping to address this problem and to give more Canadians a chance to plan for long-term financial security.

The RDSP is the world’s first savings plan specifically designed for people with disabilities. Even with little to no personal contributions, there are significant government contributions available to help many people with disabilities save for their future. 

An estimated 500,000 people across Canada could benefit from an RDSP, but so far only about 200,000 plans have been opened. That means that thousands are missing out on this free money and the benefits that come along with future savings. By acknowledging RDSP Awareness month our hope is that more people will learn about this matched savings plan and that one day every eligible person knows about and has access to the resources and support needed to open one.

Whether you are a person with a disability, a family member or friend, financial planner, lawyer or doctor, we think it is important that you know about the RDSP. So please help us spread the word!

 

“Reducing poverty is a major challenge for our province. The RDSP is a valuable tool that can help to address poverty for people with disabilities. It’s an opportunity for people with disabilities to have some peace of mind, knowing they will have savings available as they age. I encourage everyone to visit RDSP.com to sign up or help someone start an RDSP today.”

– Shane Simpson, Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction
