Looking a Gift Horse in the Mouth--How to Make the Most Out of Registered Government Savings Plans
Released on Saturday, September 9, 2017•RETIREMENT
The Federal Government has created a surprising number of different registered savings plans to help Canadians finance their futures. This informal and engaging presentation will summarize how Registered Savings Plans ("RRSPs"), Registered Retirement Income Funds ("RRIFs") Tax Free Savings Accounts ("TFSAs"), Registered Educational Savings Plans ("RESPs") and Registered Disability Savings Plans ("RDSPs") work, but more importantly, it will also help you make the most out of these different opportunities - as they say, the devil is in the details. In addition to discussing most tax-efficient ways to fund these different programs and which to prioritize in different circumstances, this presentation will also focus on when and how to best withdraw money, particularly from RRSPs and RRIFs. Although registered programs can help us accumulate large sums of money for the future, this money goes a lot further if we can manage and reduce the tax bill that arises on the other end. Ultimately, it's not the size of your accounts that matter but how much you have left to spend after the tax man has come and gone.
