Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF)

Get the most out of your savings once you retire. Convert your RRSP to an RRIF and enjoy your retirement while the rest of your money continues to grow.

What is an RRIF?

An RRIF is a plan that converts your RRSP savings into income after retirement. Instead of cashing in all your RRSP savings at once (and paying income tax on the total amount), an RRIF allows you to make withdrawals as you need them and lets the rest of your money continue to grow, tax-sheltered.

RRIF features you’re sure to enjoy

Enjoy flexible savings options

Choose from a variety of investment options within your RRIF to suit your savings goals.

Your savings stay in your pocket

RRIFs keep your RRSP savings tax-sheltered beyond age 71 so you can continue to grow your nest egg at competitive interest rates, without paying taxes as you earn.

Access your money as you need it

You are only required to withdraw a minimal amount from your RRIF annually, which means you can withdraw lump sum funds at any time while allowing the rest of your money to continue to grow tax-free.

Take advantage of Pension Income Credit

Members ages 65 and over can convert $2,000 of RRSP savings to a RRIF annually to access up to $2,000 in Pension Income Credits.
