Step 9: Re-Apply for the Disability Tax Credit, As Necessary

There are 10 steps to starting and managing an RDSP. Step 9 is Re-Applying for the Disability Tax Credit, As Necessary. Even after you have applied for the Disability Tax Credit and your request forms are approved, you will have to do it again after some time. Your approval letter will tell you when you need to re-apply. This may be only one year later, or it might be longer, such as in 10 to 15 years. To re-apply, you just follow the same actions outlined in Step 2, and Step 3 if you need to.

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
