Hopefully you don’t go to sleep at night wondering how to explain payments from RDSPs. We do!!!

It would be easy to take the attitude – “It’s complicated.  I’ll learn it when I need to.”  At PLAN, we don’t think that’s good enough.  It’s an investment.  It’s an insurance policy.  It’s the future.  We want to know that it will work so we can go to sleep at night with peace of mind – that it will work for our family members. 

In planning for the future over many years, families tell us that peace of mind comes with knowledge and action.

Here’s a summary of our latest, greatest explanation of payments.  (The full detailed document is attached at the bottom of the post)
