How will an RDSP impact my government income benefits?

In B.C., the RDSP is exempt as an asset and as income, which means that the RDSP will not impact your income assistance or  disability assistance. In addition, the RDSP does not affect Federal benefits such as Canada Pension Plan—Disability, Old Age Security payments and the Guaranteed Income Supplement.

For more information about setting up an RDSP, please call the Disability Planning hotline at 1-844-311-PLAN or 1-844-311-7526. The Guide is also available in other formats, such as text only, PDF, audio and word files on the Government of B.C. Accessibility 2024 website at
