What you’ll need to get started with an SPP Individual Pension Plan:

How does the Saskatchewan Pension Plan work?

  • Any Canadian between 18 and 71 years of age can join
  • Choose how often and how much to contribute
  • Make monthly or lump sum contributions — the choice is yours
  • SPP is a tax sheltered investment option, so you pay less in taxes each year
  • No minimum yearly contribution
  • Professional oversight and expert fund management with an MER targeted at less than 1%
  • Contribute up to $2,500 annually (with available RRSP contribution room)
  • Your spouse can contribute to you account (if they have RRSP contribution room)
  • Transfer in up to $10,000/yr to your individual pension plan from other registered retirement investments
  • Begin receiving pension income anytime from age 55 to December of the year you turn 71

For each tax year, you can contribute from January to December, plus 60 days into the next year. Pension Plan contributions are locked in and earn interest until you retire.

In the event you die before retiring, the accrued pension funds will be paid to your beneficiary.
