Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I start planning for retirement?

    Creating a financial plan that takes your goals and lifestyle into account will help you see how much you will need in retirement. Your IG Advisor can help you determine where your contributions should be directed and help design an investment portfolio that’s right for you.

  • How much income do I need for the retirement I want?

    There’s no magic number. What you’ll need will vary based on your projected fixed expenses and desired retirement lifestyle. By working with your IG Advisor to create an IG Living Plan, you can determine the income required for the retirement you envision. You’ll want to regularly review that number as your life evolves.

  • What are the steps in retirement planning?

    The first step is to identify the lifestyle you wish to have in retirement. From there, working with an IG Advisor will work with you to determine your sources of income in retirement, and adjust your financial plan to meet your retirement goals.

  • Isn't retirement planning just contributing to my RRSPs?

    There are many sources of income that you can draw on in retirement that can be incorporated into your financial plan. These may include any combination of the Canada/Quebec Pensioan Plan, Old Age Security, your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)/Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF), your Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA), non-registered investment accounts, proceeds from a real estate sale, money in a savings account, an annuity or workplace pension income, and other savings.
