Critical Illness Insurance & RRSPs

If a critical illness strikes……

  • RRSPs designed for retirement use but often client’s only savings
  • Fully taxable upon withdrawal – not efficient use of savings
  • Long term financial plans based on compounding of growth i.e. time money is invested
  • Restoring savings likely to be difficult

Solution: Contribute less to RRSP and purchase CI with ROP benefit

  • Ensures that RRSP remains intact in event of Critical Illness
  • More funds available to effectively deal with critical Illness
  • “Redirecting” savings will have minimal effect on retirement income
