Enjoy. You can retire for the right reasons.
Like most Canadians, you likely want to retire happily and comfortably with personal and financial peace of mind.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a say in your retirement future?
Whether you are just starting your career or nearing retirement, one of the goals of your retirement plan should be to make your money last at least as long as you do. Planning and investing during your working years will help ensure that you will be able to live comfortably in retirement.
Your retirement advantage
A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is one of the best ways available to prepare for your retirement.
What is an RRSP?
An RRSP is a provision regulated by the federal government of Canada through the Income Tax Act, allowing tax advantages on contributions and deferring taxes on growth within the plan. An RRSP can hold a wide range of investment instruments to help save for retirement.
Benefits of an RRSP
Tax deductible contributions: An RRSP can help lower your taxable income and lower the income tax you have to pay for the year. (The maximum contribution limit for the 2007 tax period is 18% of your previous year’s earned income, up to a maximum of $19,000.)*
Tax deferral on investment earnings and income: The money you accumulate in your RRSP is tax-deferred until it is withdrawn. This can have a significant effect on the amount you have at retirement.
Tax deferred options at retirement: At retirement, you can transfer your accumulated RRSP into any of the RRSP maturity options, such as a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF), where your investments continue to grow, tax-free, until you withdraw them.
Whatever your retirement goals are, the key to reaching them lies in starting early, contributing and investing regularly as well as making sure that you use up any unused contribution room.**
