For your child’s RDSP – make sure the names match between the application and the SIN number

A parent was unsure why their child's RDSP was not receiving the yearly matches from the government.  After looking into it, she found that her maiden name on her SIN number, but her married name was on the application for the RDSP, which was why the government matches were not occurring.  Once she switched her SIN number to her married name, ensuring that the name was the same on both the RDSP application and the SIN number, the matches from the government were made.
