Every parent or guardian should have an RDSP in place for their family member with developmental disabilities. The RDSP is a world leading program that provides financial security for individuals with disabilities and their families until they are needed in the future.

The Canadian government will contribute $1000 a year for 20 years to any person’s RDSP even if their family is unable to make any contribution. And annually for every dollar you can contribute up to $500 the Canadian government will triple that amount and if you contribute up to another $1000 the government will double that amount and will continue to do so up to $70,000. And finally the money earned in the RDSP is exempt from AISH.

This means however much money is earned over time, the person’s eligibility for Alberta’s Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH) is not affected. Nor is any other government program that provides funding or supports. Dean illustrates how starting an RDSP early can result in the person with disabilities having a substantial sum of money, over and above any government assistance, to be used as needed.
