There is no secret. The more you save, the bigger your retirement budget. Do you need to be a millionaire to do this? Not necessarily. It all depends on your lifestyle. However, one thing is certain: we can all save, and the sooner you start, the more you will save.
Let us offer you a plan that will meet your retirement goals.
Your needs are simple, but many: investing in retirement; ensuring your family's financial security; paying lower taxes, etc. A financial plan can help you prioritize them and meet them more easily. It is never too early (or too late) to plan and invest. Contact your advisor or financial planner to make an appointment.
The RRSP allows you to save money and defer taxation of your savings to your retirement, at which time the rate will be lower. You also accumulate interest in the meantime.
Not contributing to your RRSP for a year can have a real impact on your retirement income goal. Borrowing to contribute to your RRSP may be more advantageous.
The TFSA allows you to save tax-free, but also to take advantage of non-taxable withdrawals. An ideal way to save for a project. Which of these two savings tools suits you best?
Borrowing to contribute to an RRSP
Our RRSP loans allow you to borrow to increase your annual RRSP contribution and make up for lost time. Not contributing to your RRSP for a year can have a real impact on your retirement income goal. Borrowing to contribute to your RRSP may be more advantageous. This is a particularly effective strategy when you apply your tax refund against your loan.
