Retirement shouldn’t feel overwhelming
Your current workplace retirement savings plan may leave you wondering:
- Will I be able to retire on my terms?
- How much will I need to save to ensure I don’t run out of money?
- Am I making the best investment decisions for my future?
We spoke with Canadians to find out if and how they are saving for retirement – here’s what they had to say about their retirement security.
What if… you had access to a predictable pension that lasts a lifetime, with early retirement options, spousal benefits and protection against inflation?
