Breaking through barriers for workers
who have children with special needs

Welcome to Special Needs and Moving On Projects!

Special Needs & Moving On projectsThe Special Needs and Moving On Projects provide resources and support for workers at the post office whose children have disabilities. The projects are available to members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and the Union of Postal Communications Employees (Public Service Alliance of Canada). The Special Needs Project is geared to families with young children; the Moving On Project is for adult sons and daughters with special needs. Life is more demanding when you work and have a child with special needs. Learn more about our Special Needs and Moving On projects.

Statement of Entitlement (SoE)

In the coming months, a Statement of Entitlement (SoE) will be sent to all RDSP holders. This annual mail-out was implemented last year. The SoE provides important information about the amount of grants and bonds that an RDSP beneficiary is entitled to receive from the Government of Canada each year. Unused grant and bond entitlements from past years can be claimed as well (going back to 2008, the year that the RDSP became available). Grant and bond entitlements are based on the beneficiary’s family income, as determined through the Canada Child Tax Benefit or Income Tax Returns filed. Grant entitlements also depend on how much money is contributed to the RDSP.

To ensure receipt of the SoE, RDSP holders are encouraged to contact their financial institution as soon as possible, if their mailing address has changed.

Should RDSP holders have questions about their SoE, they may contact us by telephone at 1-866-204-0357, TTY at 1-866-260-7723 or by e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (Callers should have their Social Insurance Number (SIN) available; however, inquiries submitted by e-mail should not include the SIN.)

General information about the RDSP, the grant and the bond continues to be available on our web site at www.disabilitysavings.gc.ca, or by calling 1 800 O-Canada (1 800-622-6232). TTY users may call 1-800-926-9105.
