Advisors who can help you go that extra step
At UNI, we love helping make dreams come true. Contact our advisors to find out how to:
By working together, we can make it happen!
Life is full of stressful situations—from late payments and wage cuts to injuries and serious illness. Not to mention those unexpected events that can force you to dip into your retirement fund, your kids’ education savings or the nest egg you’ve been setting aside for that trip you’ve been dreaming of.
That’s why spending a few extra dollars per month to protect your assets is worth it! With credit insurance for mortgages, personal loans and lines of credit, you can enjoy life today without having to worry about the future.
Did you know your family’s finances could be at risk if you died? We leave behind financial obligations when we die: funeral expenses, debts to pay, lost of income for the family, and more. If you make monthly mortgage or car payments, for example, your family will be responsible for them after you’re gone.
You can save your loved ones from financial stress down the road by taking out insurance today to help protect them in the future.
Not sure you have the financial means or medical history to qualify for insurance? Don’t worry! Some insurance products don’t require any medical tests, while others allow you to pay less up front so you can enjoy valuable peace of mind.
Want to protect your loved ones? Ask about the options today.
But just because you take good care of it doesn’t mean things can’t go wrong. Nobody’s totally protected against injury or serious illness—but your finances can be!
Injury or illness can have serious consequences for your mortgage, the lifestyle you and your family are used to, even the future of your children. Not to mention the extra medical expenses (and financial headaches) that health problems can bring! Fortunately, there are insurance products available to help you stay on track.
Better yet, some of these products can be customized to give you the coverage that best fits your needs. For example, you can get coverage for the illnesses you’re most concerned about, pick a policy that covers all your debts if something unexpected happens or buy critical illness insurance that only applies to certain loans—like your mortgage, for example. That way, if you get sick, your mortgage payments are all taken care of.
Estate planning is an important step in a person’s life. It’s a way to help ensure your children and grandchildren maintain their quality of life. That’s why it’s so important to carefully prepare for the transfer of your assets. Estate planning reduces the financial burden on your family and protects them going forward. It allows you to ensure that your final wishes are respected, and that your loved ones thrive and prosper.
Whether you're dreaming of a home in the country, an African safari or a brand new convertible, you should be able to plan the kind of retirement YOU want. And it doesn't take a math degree to understand that the more you save and the earlier you start, the easier it will be to achieve your retirement dreams.
The key is to choose the option that allows you to save the most, based on your goals.
Already dreaming of retirement? Have you thought about contributing to an RRSP?
With an RRSP, you build your nest egg and defer taxes until you start withdrawing your savings. And best of all, you earn investment income in the meantime, growing your investments as you go.
It's a good idea to contribute to your RRSP each year, so you might also want to look into our RRSP loan options. They're a good way to keep saving in times when you've got less cash on hand. Talk to one of our advisors for details on the tax benefits of RRSP contributions.
If your priority is to buy a home or go back to school, UNI gives you access to programs designed just for that. The Home Buyers' Plan (HBP) lets you withdraw up to $35,000 from your RRSP tax-free to use as a down payment on your first home, on the condition that you repay what you take out within 15 years.
As for the Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP), it lets you cash in RRSP savings tax free to fund full-time studies. You can take out up to $20,000 over four years, as long as you pay the amount back into your plan within ten years.
The TSFA - now that's a great option! A TSFA allows you to put money aside and grow your savings tax-free. Unlike with an RRSP, you can withdraw funds you've invested in your TSFA at any time, without penalty.
Whatever life stage you're at, you can use your savings how and when you want-for renos, travel, starting a business, planning for retirement. It's up to you.
Are you or a loved one living with a permanent disability? An RDSP is a savings too for people in your situation.
An RDSP lets you put money aside for the financial security of a person with a disability to help make their future more comfortable.
There are many different products you can choose from to help make your savings grow:
It’s easy to lose track! Just as with your retirement savings, you’ll want to choose the best investment option for your needs and financial goals.
To help guide your decisions, you’ll need to answer these questions:
Your answers will determine what kind of investment products are best-suited for your life goals so that you can make the most of your savings.
Pro tip: whatever you do, don’t put all your eggs in one basket. As our investment advisors will tell you, nothing beats diversification!
You’ve worked hard to save for retirement, so it’s normal that you want to make the most of it when the time comes.
It’s important to remember that when you turn 71, you will have until December 31 of your birthday year to convert your RRSP savings. You can choose from several options, depending on your financial goals, your life plans and the way you want to spend your money.
Maybe you’re eager to leave work behind and travel for a few months of the year. Maybe you love your job and want to ease into retirement gradually. Maybe you prefer to keep on working and postpone retirement until later. Then let’s talk! There’s an option for each of these situations.
Whatever your plans, our advisors can help you pick the best option for you, be it an RRIF, LIF, regular income term savings or something else!
Responsible investing lets you invest in portfolios that take social, environmental and governance issues into account without sacrificing your financial objectives.
UNI has a number of market-linked guaranteed investments and mutual funds for responsible investors. They’re a good way to grow your savings in a way that’s consistent with sustainable development (and your values).
