These options, which vary according to your plan that you own, allow you to regularly withdraw money while continuing to accumulate tax-free savings from investment income.

Turn your retirement dreams into reality.
If you are 15 years or less away from retirement, now is the time to meet with an advisor and take stock of your financial situation. Together, you will establish the total amount of your retirement income sources, which will primarily consist of:
Government plan benefits
Company pension plan payments
By comparing your forecasted income with your estimated future needs, which should equal approximately 70% of your salary, you can determine if you are on the right track. If you are, keep going! On the other hand, if you see that your savings won’t be enough, it would be wise to discuss your savings options with an advisor.
