Regardless of where you land, opening and investing in a solid RESP is always the right choice if you have beneficiaries who will one day be in need of post-secondary financial resources.
Originally published on Canadian MoneySaver, Sandi details the difference in each income bracket and outlines why RESPs are more than a single-use tool. By breaking down the math, she effectively refreshes our understanding of how RESPs are a useful and wise investment regardless of your current economic status.
“Along with whatever investment income the amount earned along the way, you’ve given the beneficiary a tremendous leg up on the cost of post-secondary schooling and should be incredibly proud.”
