Helene Eschbach

Disability Planning Helpline Advisor

Helene has been associated with PLAN for more than ten years as a parent and former board member. Before her work with PLAN and Plan Institute, she was a primary teacher with the Vancouver School Board for twenty years.

Since 2010, she has been serving as one of Plan Institute’s Disability Planning Advisors offering one-to-one RDSP support for people through the toll-free helpline. In this role, she has consulted with doctors, advocates, lawyers, social workers, investment advisors as well as family members and people with diverse disabilities everywhere from Haida Gwaii to Fogo Island.

Her passion is providing information so that people can be better equipped to qualify for the RDSP. Her goal is to help as many people as possible open and grow their RDSPs so that they may enjoy a better life.
