    STORY SUMMARY:
    
    The Registered Disability Savings Plan is a new federal government
initiative designed to enhance the long-term financial security of people with
disabilities.
    It's estimated 800,000 Canadians are eligible for an RDSP. Canada is the
first country in the world to offer a registered savings product for people
with disabilities. The contribution deadline is fast approaching - March 2,
2009.
    BMO Bank of Montreal was the first bank in Canada to offer an RDSP. It
has responded to the demand by hiring additional call centre staff and
establishing a dedicated phone line to help customers open an account. The
bank has also posted tips on YouTube to help explain the benefits of the new
program.
