Retirement income options

This income may come from the following sources:

Retirement Income Fund (RIF) – 
A RIF gives you the flexibility to determine the amount of income you withdraw each year from your retirement savings. You may receive a required minimum annual amount, according to a predetermined schedule set by the federal government or opt for any figure above the minimum. You may change the income stream at any time and you only pay tax on the money you withdraw from your plan each year.
