News Release: Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP)

October is RDSP Awareness Month and the BC Government has issued a news release on the benefits of the RDSP and the work done by the RDSP Action Group and Access RDSP.

Access RDSP is a program operated by Disability Alliance BC, Plan Institute, and the BC Aboriginal Network on Disability Society (BCANDS), made possible by the support of the Vancouver Foundation.

From the news release: “Access RDSP offers individuals and families one-on-one help with RDSPs and the Disability Tax Credit, free RDSP information sessions, a disability planning hotline, Indigenous navigation supports, and distributes the Endowment 150 grant to jump-start RDSP savings. Since launching Access RDSP, the partners have reached over 7,300 people, directly connecting them with the supports and resources they need to open an RDSP. Further, 85% of people supported through Access RDSP have either successfully opened an RDSP or are actively engaged in the process.”
