3.How much of the saving is the parentsâ€™ contribution, the Governmentâ€™s contribution, and the Investment Income.
4. If the rates changes, say +/- 1%, how much their monthly payments should change? Hint: FV of payments up until year 17 so that from years 18-21 they can pay $8000/year for tuition
â€¢A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) is a government-registered plan that helps you save for a childâ€™s post-secondary education.
â€¢The money that you invest in an RESP grows tax-deferred, and the federal government helps contribute to your savings along the way in the form of education grants.
â€¢Tax is applied to the investment income and government grants received when withdrawn from the RESP, not on the contributions you made using your own funds. These amounts are taxed in the hands of the student, and this usually means little or no tax will be paid, because students typically fall into the lowest tax bracket.
â€¢The Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG) matches 20% of annual contributions, up to $500 per year
â€¢The matching contributions can continue until the lifetime limit of $7,200 per child has been reached
