RRSP Contribution Deadline is fast approaching!

February 14, 2019



 
V.P. Credit Union would like to provide our membership with a friendly reminder that the RRSP contribution deadline for the 2018 tax year is drawing near. Making an RRSP contribution can go a long way in reducing your income tax bill for the past calendar year. The Canada Revenue Agency requires all Canadians to file their personal income taxes by April 30, 2019. However, in order for your RRSP contribution to count towards your 2018 tax return, you must make a contribution no later than March 1, 2019.

If you do not have the funds available to make that contribution, you may want to consider our RRSP loans. We have competitive RRSP loan rates and the loans are repayable in full at any time without any penalties or fees. If you are interested in applying for an RRSP loan, please click HERE.
 
Once you have made your contribution we have many great investment options for you to choose from. Whether you are a “do it yourself” investor or perhaps you prefer the personal touch of a professional financial planner, we have it all covered here at VPCU.

Summarized below are our current investment options:




 
Term Deposits – Term Deposits are great investment options for those that are seeking a fixed return on their investment without the risk of the stock market ups and downs.
