ADD OR CHANGE RRIF PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS

While your RRSP is used to save for your retirement, a RRIF is used to draw income during your retirement. You are required to take a minimum annual payment by December 31 the year after the RRIF is opened. 

If you only withdraw the minimum amount each year* your withholding tax will not be assessed immediately. Your minimum amount is based on:

  • the date RRIF was established
  • your/spouses age
  • the amount currently held within the RRIF

*Exception: withholding tax is assessed on the entire amount if a minimum payment is taken in the year the RRIF is opened.

When you opened your RRIF with Outlook, you provided instructions indicating the amount of your RRIF payments and how you would like your payments distributed.

To change your RRIF payment instructions

Complete the Registered Retirement Income Fund Plan Payment Instructions Form.
