In lieu of the in-person RIO workshops, we have created an online version of the workshop consisting of the five modules below.
(Note: Modules 3 and 4 are jurisdiction specific. Please watch the applicable version of Modules 3 and 4 for your jurisdiction.)
The online workshop is designed to provide members who are nearing retirement (ages 50 and older) with in-depth information about the retirement income options available to them, including pensions, annuities, Variable Benefit payments, LIFs and PRRIFs*. It will also provide you with an overview of CPP and OAS benefits, as well as personal savings vehicles available from financial institutions such as RRSPs and TFSAs.
The online workshop will provide you with the same information that you would expect to receive during the in-person workshop.
