A Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) can be considered an extension of a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) in that your investments can continue to grow on a tax-deferred basis. The main difference is, instead of making a contribution to your plan each year, you are required to withdraw a minimum amount commencing the year after the plan is opened.
When you transfer your RRSP to a RRIF, you may continue to investment in many of the same investments such as: cash/savings, guaranteed investment certificates (GICs), mutual funds, bonds, and even equities. Within the Scotiabank Group of Companies we offer a wide selection of RRIF plans to help you plan your retirement future.
