Gifts of RRSP/RRIF

You can name Cystic Fibrosis Canada as the direct beneficiary of your registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs) and registered retirement income funds (RRIFs) and/or pension plan. By describing Cystic Fibrosis Canada as the direct beneficiary trust assets will not be subject to probate fees as your RRSP/RRIF exists outside of the estate settlement process. This is a popular way to offset taxes owing on funds at the time of death.



Simply name Cystic Fibrosis Canada as a direct beneficiary on the plan document and advise the institution holding your retirement account of the change and please advise Cystic Fibrosis Canada of your decision.

For more information, please contact Sarah Asgari at sasgari@cysticfibrosis.ca or 1-800-378-2233 ext. 304.
