RETIREMENT INCOME CALCULATOR: Ensure you are Financially Ready

When using this tool, individuals should have their CPP Statement of Contributions, financial information about their employer’s pension, most recent RRSP statement, and any other information related to savings that will provide for ongoing monthly retirement income.

Action Item: Use this tool to help asses your financial readiness for retirement.
