We all love our children and we want to provide the best opportunities for them, including a proper post-secondary education. With a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) from TCU, you can help them secure their future by saving today for their post-secondary education.
And how about a little free money to add to the RESP? That’s exactly what you get as another benefit of purchasing a TCU RESP. You can take advantage of the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG). Under this program, depending on your income, the government will provide anywhere from 20% to 40% in additional funding to your contribution to your child’s RESP.
