A gift of retirement funds


You may wish to leave to The Arthritis Society some or all of the funds in your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF). It’s as simple as naming The Arthritis Society as a beneficiary.

Distribution of your RRSP or RRIF funds will be made to The Arthritis Society and other named beneficiaries separate from the remainder of your estate and will not be subject to probate.

Your estate will receive a tax receipt for the full amount of the funds distributed to The Arthritis Society. This tax credit can be applied to the taxable income on your terminal tax return.

How to donate retirement funds

Contact your investment advisor or the financial institution holding your retirement funds. They will provide you with a beneficiary form to fill out and return to the institution.
