Planning for a child’s future
Planning for a child's future
Supporting a child’s education can be one of the most rewarding aspects of success and one of the most important elements in your financial plan. With rising inflation and the high cost of education, planning to contribute to another’s higher education may require an early start.
There are a variety of investment vehicles and tax-efficient options to contribute to the cost of higher education. As your trusted partner, our knowledge and professional guidance can help you analyze the tax benefits, ownership structure, risk and contribution limits involved – even what to do with your leftover education funds if your aspiring academic earns a scholarship.
Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs)
When you invest in potential, you’ll do more than help make the dream of education possible for a student in your life. You could provide the inspiration for a legacy of higher learning that’s passed on for generations to come. What’s more, the funds you contribute have the ability to attract up to $7,200 of federal grants, grow tax-deferred, and eventually be withdrawn, tax-free.*
Working together, we choose the investment strategy that is right for you and your student, keeping in mind that generous contribution limits do exist, regardless of income level.
*Students who receive money from an RESP must claim their Educational Assistance Payment as income. Since students typically have limited income while in school, however, they may not be required to pay any income tax on this amount. This depends on individual circumstances. Your RESP provider will issue the student a T4A slip for income tax purposes.
