Figure out your retirement income options
Government Regulations & Tax Considerations
Holders of RIFs must withdraw a minimum annual amount of retirement income from their RIFs. This amount is based on your age or your spouse's or common-law partner's age (as of January 1 of the current calendar year) and the value of the RIF at the previous year's end. If your spouse or common-law partner is younger, using their age will result in a lower minimum withdrawal, allowing more of your plan property to grow in a tax-deferred environment.
1 RIF refers to Retirement Income Fund (RIF), Life Income Fund (LIF), Locked-in Retirement Income Fund (LRIF), Prescribed RIF (PRIF), and Restricted Life Income Fund (RLIF).
