RRIF Payment Calculator (Canadian)

A Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) is a plan designed to provide Canadians with a constant income flow through retirement. The property under a RRIF is created from a transfer of funds from an RRSP or another RRIF. The funds in a RRIF are tax-deferred. Amounts paid out of a RRIF are taxable on receipt.

It is mandatory that you convert all your RRSPs by December 31st in the year you turn 71. The latest you are allowed to take your first payment is December 31st in the year you turn 72, however, the payment must be at least the full annual minimum* amount.

Canada Revenue Agency stipulates that a minimum payment must be withdrawn from your RRIF each year and reported as income. *This minimum annual payment is taken from a schedule that is based on your age or the age of your spouse.

RRIF Payment Calculator (Canadian) Definitions

Calculation assumptions
This calculator uses the following assumptions:
  1. That you started your RRIF after 1992
  2. Using the Minimum required payments following start date rule (see definitions below) - that your payments will begin on January 1st of the year following the date you have entered as the Start Date. If you wish to delay or receive payments sooner, use the Minimum required payments starting immediately radio button and enter the appropriate date. Keep in mind that the Start Date you use should be no later than December 31 of the year you turn 71 in order that your minimum payment will begin in the year you turn 72.
  3. Using the Minimum required payments following start date rule option - that you will not elect to take payments in the year you open/start the RRIF since this would result in exceeding the minimum amount and would be subject to withholding taxes. If you do elect to take payments in the year you open/start the RRIF, please use the Fixed Payment Option on this calculator.
  4. That your RRIF payments happen at the beginning of each month with interest compounded annually.
