CHOOSE THE RIGHT GROUP RETIREMENT SAVINGS PLAN

When it’s a question of optimizing a group retirement savings plan, our goal is simple:improve your experience as plan sponsor while upgrading the plan parameters to enable your employees to attain their retirement goals.

The following elements come into play whensetting up a plan:

  • Characteristic structure
  • Administration fees
  • Changes in assets
  • Investment options
  • Governance
  • Industry peer comparison
  • Recommendations and action plan

A Group RRSP is a program usually set up by the employer or union in order to make contributions to individual RRSPs. In general, only the individual member can make contributions. A Group RRSP simplifies systematic saving by automatically deducting the RRSP contributions directly from the individual’s pay. Administration is centralized and management fees are minimal.

A corporate Group TFSA gives participants the benefit of a tax-sheltered savings vehicle. Withdrawals are tax free and can be made at any time. The employer can also make contributions up to a set maximum.

This is a contract whereby the employer shares a portion of the company profits with the workers. Only the employer can contribute to a DPSP. The employer also sets the terms for plan membership and for withdrawing the funds accrued on behalf of the workers. This type of plan is often combined with a Group RRSP. Contributions and operating costs are tax deductible.

SPPs are defined contribution plans, i.e. contribution amounts are fixed in advance but the resulting retirement income is not. Each plan member has a locked-in account and a non-locked-in account. The employer contribution is paid into the locked-in account. The employer decides which account the member’s contributions will go into. It is important to note that the locked-in amounts must be used to provide retirement income; consequently, withdrawals are subject to very strict conditions.

An SPP is administered by a financial institution. Each member selects their investments from a range offered by the financial institution. The SPP was designed for SMEs, but may be appropriate for companies of any size.

The amount of contributions to be made to a defined contribution pension plan is set in advance, but the amount of retirement income is not. The retirement income of a DC plan member depends on how much money has accrued in the member’s account. Contributions made for and by each member are therefore recorded separately from those of the other members.

The financial risk of a DC plan is associated with investment performance and is assumed by the plan member.

This type of plan is usually administered by a pension committee, and sometimes by the employer.
