Canada Disability Savings Bond (CDSB)

Bonds of up to $1,000 a year will be paid directly into an RDSP to low-income Canadians with disabilities. The amount of the bond is based on the beneficiary’s family income. The bond is paid into the RDSP until the end of the year when the beneficiary turns 49 and has a lifetime bond limit of $20,000. It’s not a requirement to make contributions in the RDSP to receive a bond.
