One problem with RDSPs is that CRA, being the jerks they are (I worked there for 16 yrs so I ought to know☺) sometimes make you recertify. I am in that boat & I sent a letter to say they are insane:
1. CPPD approval;
2. SISIP to 65;
3. Sun Life to 65;
4. PS pension;
5. Res F pension;
6. Prior DTC approval.

Why are they wasting my time & the taxpayers' money? I know I qualify. I have 25 medical conditions, some small & some major. Disability increases with age, too. So the chances of recovery are near zero (0.1% in my case). So why bother?

They want to save at our expense if we forget/delay/or get refused this time around.

Wish gov would start being reasonable 😀

I get all that propat but I have what I consider a lot of money in RRSP's already , been investing since 1990. So my financial future is secured for now. How far back will the DTC be applied to my previous returns when my condition date on my application for DTC is dated starting in 2000?

i understand that buds but that's your money . the government is saying you save some money and we will just give you money a lot more than you are saving for yourself .

the GOC is giving away free money i just want to see you take it that's all .

not citrine but i think the most they can go back is 10 years like most GOC programs . so say 2006.

say a very conservative tax reimbursement of 1,500 a year that's at least 15,000 if ya get the 10 years but I'm guessing more like 20,000 .

what you will need to max the RDSP from 2008 till 2018 will be would be about 16,500 .

with the GOCs money added that would put a total of 55,000 in your RDSP account witch will earn interest for over 10 years .

ya see where I'm going with this ???

Yes I do and it makes perfect sense to get free money especially from the Government just not sure how much I will need for my income taxes this year and not sure if I can borrow what I might need. Will my decision have all the required information , how many years back dated , how much I can invest for each year , etc or will I have to look it up?

first the DTC will be good for about 5 years from the decision date so you are good there .

the info you need about the DTC will be on that .

now the investment part can be handled by your service provider ie; bank .

you just need to set up an appointment with your bank for this if they do RDSPs most do . they will have all the knowledge and paperwork for the most part they will fill out for you .

its crap simple .

since you are at an appointment for a RDSP they will be prepared and set you on the right track just bring a copy of your DTC paper and make clear of your intent to pay for the unused years that's all .

the only thing I cant tell you is what your bank has for investment opportunities GIC
they will let you go home with literature and some advice that you may want to take with a grain of salt to decide where YOU want to invest this money . then when you decide you should just be able to call them about your decision and that's it .

if your bank doesn't do RDSP for some reason you may need to open an accout with the bank and deposit in enough funds to cover the RDSPs .

sounds like a lot of stuff but its easy .

I never knew anything about the DTC until I read this thread... Called VAC and asked why they never told me about it, they said "it's not a VAC program. I reminded them that they are supposed to be working FOR Veterans, and helping vets get ALL the help they can, regardless of the entity administering the helpful program or service. I also asked why they never told me about the different benefits and entitlements VAC "provides"... She told me it was all on the website.
Soooooo ... VAC thinks that a Veteran with mental health issues/avoidance/PTSD is going to go through the hurdles and pages of policy to figure out what they may be entitled to??!!! I can't even imagine the number of eligible vets that never even know of/apply for benefits because VAC doesn't tell them and their mental health impedes them for fighting for their entitled benefits.
The system is broken. The onus should be on VAC to serve and protect the VETS that served and protected Canada.
I'm getting my DTC filled in by my doc tomorrow. wish me luck.

Good luck Vet1234!

Just remember to ask the doctor to backdate it to the start of your qualifying disability.

After that you should be able to apply for an adjustment to all those years of taxes.
