Your Post-Work Checklist

Helping you Make the Most of Your Retirement

By Susan Gottlieb

If you are getting close to retirement, or have just recently retired, there are many

financial details that you need to address, such as applying for government benefits and

converting your registered plans to provide you with pension income. To help you

address many of these important issues, RBC has created a 16-page Retirement


The checklist includes a comprehensive listing of many of the financial issues people

like you, who are approaching retirement or have already retired, typically face.

Depending on your individual situation, some of the items on the list may not be

applicable to you, or you may have already addressed them.

The 6 checklists cover the following topics:

Government Benefits

Employer Pension and Benefits

RRSPs, RRIFs, Locked-In Accounts and TFSAs

Non-registered assets

Estate Planning

Other considerations

This checklist may serve as a handy tool to make sure you have considered important

strategies for maximizing your retirement income. The checklist also provides a number

of items for you to consider when estate planning.

Although too large to include in the pages of Tonic, we would be happy to e-mail you a

copy of the checklist, upon request.
