We C.U. for RSP Saving Plans.
What is an RSP?
A Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RSP) is a government approved plan that allows you to save money for the retirement lifestyle you want. Depositing to an RSP can also help you reduce the taxes you pay now and allows you to accumulate more because income compounds tax-free while it’s in the plan.
Contributions to RSPs, up to your allowable contribution limit, are tax-deductible. Income earned within an RSP accumulates tax-free as long as the funds remain in the plan. Invest up to the RSP deduction limit shown on your RSP statement from CRA (Canada Revenue Agency formerly Revenue Canada). Deposits are insured regardless of the amount in your account per contract by the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario, an agency of the Government of Ontario.

You might also want to consider the RSP pre-authorized credit plan (PAC) from The Credit Union. It’s an automatic savings plan that allows you to contribute as much or as little as you choose. It’s easy to set up because The Credit Union takes care of everything for you so you don’t have to worry. Funds are deducted automatically from your account and the sooner you contribute, the sooner your RSP can start earning tax sheltered income. You can make monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly installments throughout the year. You decide! And you can make regular contributions of as little as $25 per pay.

Laddered Term Deposits – Convenient, Safe and Flexible
With Laddered Term Deposits, you can reduce your risk and maximize your return. Your initial investment is simply divided into 5 equal portions and invested in 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 year terms. Each year, one of the terms matures and is automatically used to purchase a new 5 year term deposit allowing the cycle of investment to continue. If rates fall, a larger portion of your portfolio may benefit from the original higher rates that were in place when you made your initial investment. So now you don’t need to worry about chasing high rates or waiting out the low ones. Click here for more details.
