Russ MacDonaldIf you are a member of your employer's pension plan, you are typically offered two different ways to draw pension benefits when you retire.

The traditional option is to receive fixed monthly installment payments from your pension plan for your lifetime. Another option is to convert your pension money as a lump sum into a Locked-In Retirement Account (LIRA) which offers you freedom to manage your money as you would with an RRSP. This option appeals to many.

If you're unsure which option is the right one, ask yourself:
  • Am I worried I won't have enough to live the lifestyle I want in retirement?
  • Do I have other sources of retirement income, such as personal savings (e.g.registered retirement savings plans)?
  • Am I concerned commuting my pension to a LIRA will make managing my money more complicated?
  • Am I worried about taking control of my assets?
  • Is there comfort in having a stable and reliable income or do I want the opportunity to grow my assets?
If you're still unsure, consider commuting your pension to a LIRA rather than taking the pension. Taking a pension means you're locked in to that decision. There is no opportunity to transfer it later. By commuting it to a LIRA first, you can still later decide you would prefer a guaranteed income and then use your LIRA to purchase a life annuity.

To further explore this option to see if it is right for you please call me today for a no obligation consultation. I'd be more than happy to field any questions you may have and give you the ins and outs of what all your options are.
