Registered Retirement Savings Plan

A Registered Retirement Savings Plan is a tax sheltered savings plan that allows a tax break now, and allows you to tax shelter contributions and interest to provide an income for future years. Each dollar you contribute (subject to Canada Revenue Agency’s limits) to your RRSP gives you a tax deduction for the same amount. When you take money out of your RRSP, it is then treated as taxable income, but you control when and how much you take out. This can be timed to occur when your income is lower.

At Strathclair Credit Union, we offer RRSP’s that are easy to understand. These plans also provide investment flexibility and are secure.

Whether you invest in a Variable RRSP, where your interest rate varies with changing marketplace conditions, or a Fixed Term RRSP, where you earn a fixed rate of interest, with as little as $25 per month, you can be well on your way to a comfortable retirement. So please, for your future, speak to any of our Deposit Services Representatives to set you up with a plan that suits your lifestyle.
