    Registered Retirement Savings Accounts Expand/Collapse

    A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is a savings plan designed primarily to help our members save toward retirement.  The money you stow away in an RRSP will only be taxed when you need to withdraw it during your retirement, most likely at a lower tax rate than now when you’re working. RRSPs are converted to Register Retirement Income Funds until the year a member turns 71.

    We’ll help you understand RRSPs, learn about the different investment options available, and tailor-make an RRSP plan to that works for you and your family. 

    Who Can Contribute

    Canadian residents under the age of 71 with employment income and a tax return can contribute to an RRSP.

    Withdrawal Rules

    There are tax consequences to withdrawing from your RRSP before you retire, so try to avoid it. If you withdraw early, the money you take out will be subject to a withholding tax and it’s counted as part of your income for that year (meaning you pay income tax on it). There are a couple exceptions. You can borrow from your RRSP to help pay for your first home under the federal Home Buyers' Plan. You can also use money from your RRSP to pay for training or education as part of the federal Lifelong Learning Plan.

    Spousal RRSPs

    With a spousal RRSP, the spouse or common-law partner is the owner of the account but you contribute to the account. This is a great way to split income for tax purposes. For example, if you earn more than your spouse, you can split your RRSP contribution between your personal RRSP and a spousal RRSP. You still get the tax deduction, and you also help to grow your spouse’s retirement savings.

    Retirement Income Funds (RRIF)

    Once you retire, the amounts you have invested in your RRSPs are converted into RRIFs and begin making monthly payments for your in retirement.
