Self-Directed Retirement Income Fund (RIF)*

You may have retired, but your investments haven't

Account Highlights

A self-directed RIF in Canada can be a convenient and flexible way to continue building your portfolio in the Canadian and US markets even after you turn 71.

  • Gains can continue to grow tax-deferred in your RIF
    When you convert your individual RSP to a RIF in Canada, you can still buy, sell, and hold securities according to your strategy.
  • Manage your redemptions to match your needs
    Any withdrawals are taxable income in the year you make the redemption.
  • Set up a Withdrawal Plan
    If you hold mutual funds, set up a Systematic Withdrawal Plan (SWP) for a regular monthly income stream and meet minimum RIF withdrawal requirements.
  • Other Retirement Income Options
    TD Direct Investing also offers a Prescribed Retirement Income Fund (PRIF)*
