RRIF (Registered Retirement Income Fund)

RRIFs - Registered Retirement Income Funds
By the end of the calendar year in which you turn 71, you must either withdraw your RRSPs or convert them into RRIFs. RRIFs are a sytematic withdrawal plan that allows you to take out a minimum payment, a fixed amount or a maximum amount (in the case of locked-in plans).  All of the same options exist as with RRSPs for investment. Just remember you can only deposit RRSPs into a RRIF. Talk to someone at your Credit Union and set up your retirement plan with a KCCU RRIF.

Hard-Working Credit Union RRIFs
Look into the RRIFs available at your Credit Union, and you'll see smart investment options that guarantee a solid return. Choose the RRIFs  that suit you best:

Variable Rate RRIF
This type of RRIF ensures that your investment keeps pace with current interest trends. Interest rates are reviewed and adjusted regularly so that you benefit from the most competitive rate.

Fixed Rate RRIF
A Fixed Rate RRIF provides the security of knowing your rate of return is guaranteed for a fixed period of time. You can choose the term that best fits your plans.
