Can I claim an RRSP receipt even though it is in my wife’s name?



Our response:

Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) issuers are required to provide a receipt for the amounts you contributed. If you contributed to your spouse’s RRSP, the receipt should name you as the contributor and your spouse as the annuitant. Only the contributor can claim a contribution on a tax return.

Visit to learn about RRSPs, including spousal RRSPs. You may also refer to the Canada Revenue Agency on RRSPs and related plans. Speak with a tax professional for advice that suits your personal and financial situation.
