The RDSP

For those of us that have managed to get the Disability Tax Credit or DTC, this also opens up another program called the Registered Disability Savings Plan or RDSP. In order to open an RDSP, you first have to get approved for the DTC. There are other posts about that so I wont go into it here, but wanted to remind people to open up an RDSP once they are approved (providing you meet the other restrictions such as age, etc).The BC Coalition for People with Disabilities put out a guide in 2010…See More
