RRSP's are a great tool for retirement savings but they can also be used for:
- Sheltering your income
- Purchasing a home
After your 71st birthday, you will need to convert your RRSP into a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF).
Benefits with a RRIF include:
- Your funds remain tax sheltered
- You decide how they are invested
Creating possibilities often goes hand in hand with higher education, but it comes with a big price tag.
RESP's are a great savings tool to help your children, grandchildren or yourself achieve the education of your dreams.
- $50,000 maximum lifetime contribution per beneficiary
- Up to $500/year per beneficiary from Canadian Education Savings Grant
- All money earned in the plan grows tax free until it's withdrawn
When it comes to building your rainy day fund, there is nothing more flexible than a Tax Free Savings Account. TFSA's give you the option to:
- Earn tax-free income
- Make tax-free withdrawals at any time
- Carry forward unused contribution limits
