On Retirement
As the plan is meant to be saved for one’s retirement, one of the most common withdrawals are made for retirements. Here, the year in which you withdraw the cash, it will be added and taxed in your regular income. But once you reach the age of 71, you will be required to transfer your savings to an RRIF, Registered Retirement Income Fund. In this a regular monthly cash out will be mandatory, unlike an RRSP where you could withdraw only when you require to.

-On Death

On the death of the account holder the amount, the saved amount would be transferred to the beneficiary mentioned in the account. The tax however applicable will be liable to be paid by the estate and the not beneficiary. But in case the beneficiary is the spouse, the account would still continue in the name of the spouse and the amount will hence not be taxable yet.

Home Buyer’s Plan or Life Long Learning Plan

One of the ways in which you can withdraw your savings and still not be liable to pay tax on it is by transferring your savings from the RRSP to a Home Buyer’s Plan or Life Long Learning Plan. Which means you can use the amount towards buying your first home or to return to a post-secondary school.

Many of our clients often question on how much should one save under an RRSP in order to get the optimum benefit out of it. There are a few conditions applicable here when it comes to saving in an RRSP. To avoid citizens claim a large of their taxable income as a deduction for saving in an RRSP, only an 18% of your previous year’s taxable income can be saved. This has a few other calculations involved, such as, when you transfer any amount in a RRSP account in the first 60 days of the year, it needs to be mentioned in the previous year’s assessing statement.
