A Guide to Individual Pension Plans

An Individual Pension Plan (“IPP”) is a defined benefit pension plan that is designed for high-income earning executives, small business owners, and incorporated professionals, such as doctors, dentists, and lawyers. An IPP allows eligible individuals to accrue retirement income on a tax-deferred basis and is an excellent way to increase your retirement nest egg, as contributions are higher than those available through a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (“RRSP”). An IPP is most suitable for individuals between ages 40 and 71 who have T4 earnings generally greater than $154,611 in 2020.
