Compare Potential Annuity and RRIF Payments

Before December 31 in the year you turn 71, you have two options when it comes to your RRSP: You can convert it to an annuity, or roll your funds over to a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF).

While both options provide income in retirement, an annuity offers unique benefits:

  • Guaranteed income for life—you'll never outlive your retirement assets
  • A potentially higher rate of return versus a conservative RRIF
  • Payments are locked in once you buy your annuity—you don't have to worry about market fluctuations or interest rates
  • You don't have to actively manage funds or withdrawals as you would with a RRIF
  • You don't have to withdraw a minimum amount every year
