A small change can make a major difference
Saving for your retirement doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, many Canadians don’t realize how easy it can be to increase the size of their retirement savings. Take a moment to consider the chart below.
The first bar of the chart shows the possible growth of investments within an Investors Group registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) over 20 years if you contribute $400 per month*. The other bars show the impact of contributing $600 and $800 respectively. The differences in the end values clearly show the benefits of taking full advantage of the tax-deferred growth RRSPs can provide – so that you can retire in comfort without any major changes to the lifestyle you enjoy today. What’s more, by making the maximum contribution possible, you could lower your annual income tax assessment at the same time! However, you need to be sure you are not exceeding your accumulated unused RRSP contribution room as assessed by the Canada Revenue Agency.
