Spousal Registered Retirement Savings Plans (SP RSP)

Spousal RRSP

Spousal RRSP (SP RSP) works the same way as a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP), however your spouse owns the account.  When you make contributions, you will receive a tax deduction.  This type of account can be useful for tax planning and can be especially beneficial for a couple where one earns considerably more than the other by creating a more equal balance between incomes.  It can also be a good account to have if one partner has a work pension plan and the other doesn’t.  

As with any financial goal or endeavor, you will benefit from working with a financial planner.  If you and your spouse are looking for ways to maximize your finances, book your free consultation today.
