Over the past few years, the RRSP+ has really grown in popularity. The Fonds expects to meet its annual cash flow targets solely from payroll source deductions and contributions made by savers who are already signed up for automatic savings.
What's your situation?
You contribute to the RRSP+ through employer payroll deductions
There is no effect on your saving habits with the Fonds.
You are already registered for automatic bank withdrawals
This does not affect preauthorized withdrawals that are already active for your account. However, it is not currently possible to increase your contribution amount. Please also keep in mind that if you cancel your preauthorized withdrawal agreements at any point during the year, you won't be able to reinstate them.
You are repaying an amount you withdrew as part of the HBP or LLP through the Fonds de solidarité FTQ
Lump-sum contributions and automatic bank withdrawals continue to be accepted in order to reimburse amounts you withdrew from the Fonds as part of the Home Buyers' Plan (HBP) or Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP).
Are payroll deductions not an option for you?
We are well aware that this is the case for many of our savers. Rest assured that the savings you've already accumulated will continue to grow in your RRSP+ to help you reach your retirement goals.
