Financial Disappointment

In going over our various investments for last year in preparation of tax season, I noticed something odd.  The grant money which we should have received for Alex's RDSP for 2016 never arrived.

It took me two days of navigating various telephone menus until I finally reached someone who could tell me what was going on.  It turns out that Alex's grant application was rejected by the federal government because my SIN was still under my maiden name instead of my married one.

This rejection happened in 2015 and no one bothered to tell us about it.

A very simple clerical error, one fixable in seconds, and we've lost a year of grant money and all of the interest it would have accrued over Alex's lifetime.

Not impressed at all.
