Our response:

Once you are ready to close and convert a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or a Locked-in Retirement Account (LIRA) to receive income in retirement, one of your options is to purchase an annuity. For more information:

  • RRSP rules are set by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). You can learn more about receiving income from an RRSP from the CRA.
  • LIRA rules are set by the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO). You can learn more about LIRAs from FSCO.
  • An annuity is a contract with a life insurance company. Insurance companies in Ontario are regulated by FSCO.

Speak to a registered financial advisor lisenced to sell insurance products or a licensed insurance agent to learn more about your options to purchase an annuity.
