Enhancing Your Retirement Income


Individual Pension Plans (IPPs)
An IPP is an employer-sponsored registered pension plan that offers potentially higher tax-
deductible contributions for the corporation than an RSP. Unlike a regular pension plan, an
IPP is usually established for just one person. In some cases, a spouse employed by the
same company can also be a member of the IPP.
IPPs are ideally suited for self-employed incorporated business owners or professionals
who want to boost their retirement savings. Those most likely to benefit from an IPP are
individuals aged 40-71 who earn at least $122,222 annually.
The main advantages of an IPP compared to an RSP include:
• Higher tax-deductible contributions at certain ages (age 40 and older)
• Large tax-deductible contributions for past service
• Tax-deductible “top-up” contributions when the IPP is in a deficit
• Creditor protection for the pension funds
• Tax-deductibility of fees, including investment management fees, as a business ex-
pense
While an IPP offers several important advantages versus an RSP, there are some consid-
erations:
• In most provinces, the IPP is locked-in and continues to be locked-in at retirement
• An actuarial valuation is required every three or four years, depending on the
• province
• Annual administration fees are higher than the fees to administer an RSP
