GIFTS OF RRSP/RRIF
You can name the Canadian Spondylitis Association as the direct beneficiary of your registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) and registered retirement income funds (RRIFs) and/or pension plan. In doing so, trust assets will not be subject to probate fees as your RRSP/RRIF exists outside of the estate settlement process. This can be an advantageous way to offset taxes owing on funds at the time of death.
BENEFITS OF MAKING GIFTS OF RRSP/RRIF:
- Your gift is treated as a charitable donation in the year of death and is eligible for a charitable tax credit on your final tax return
- You retain full access to your retirement funds for the duration of your lifetime
- The designation is revocable and can be changed if your financial and/or life circumstances change
- Funds that otherwise would be lost to taxation are re-directed towards helping CSA support Canadians living with spondyloarthritis
HOW TO GIVE GIFTS OF RRSP/RRIF:
Simply name Canadian Spondyloarthritis Association as a direct beneficiary on the plan document and advise the institution holding your retirement account of the change. We encourage you to also advise the Canadian Spondyloarthritis Association of your decision, which will be held in confidence as per your wishes.
