Annuitant of an RRSP or RRIF

An annuitant of an Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) is the person for whom the plan or fund provides a retirement income.

Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF)

A registered retirement income fund is a tax deferred retirement plan registered with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). It is usually used to hold property transferred from an RRSP and RPP. Establishing a RRIF can be done at anytime, but must be done no later than the year the annuitant turns 71.
