Manulife Segregated Fund RESP

Helping to fund a child’s post-secondary education is one of the most important investments you can make in their future, especially in today’s competitive environment where a good education is crucial to success. Yet, with the rising cost of tuition fees and living expenses, personal savings alone may not be enough to cover the cost of higher education.

The Manulife Segregated Fund RESP is a new investment solution to help you save for a future post-secondary education need.

What you should know:

  • A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP)  is a flexible and convenient way to save for a child’s future post-secondary education
  • Government grants and incentives may be available to qualified Student Beneficiaries to help RESP savings grow
  • Investment income generated in an RESP is tax-sheltered as long as it remains in the plan
  • When withdrawn, plan growth and government grants can be taxed at the student’s tax rate (he or she could pay little or no tax on this money)
  • There is no annual contribution limit with an RESP, but the lifetime maximum is $50,000 per Student Beneficiary
  • Anyone can open an RESP – parents, guardians, grandparents, other relatives, or friends
  • Individuals can also purchase an RESP for themselves for future post-secondary education needs
  • A segregated fund contract offers unique protection features, including death benefit and maturity guarantees

Please feel free to contact us to learn more about RESPs and get more information on the government incentives and grants available.

Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA)

The Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) allows Canadians, age 18 and over, to set money aside tax-free throughout their lifetime. Each calendar year, you can contribute up to the TFSA dollar limit for the year, plus any unused TFSA contribution room from the previous year, and the amount you withdrew the year before.

The annual TFSA dollar limit for 2017 is $5,500.*

All income earned and withdrawals from a TFSA are generally tax-free. Plus, having a TFSA does not impact federal benefits and credits. It's a great way to save for short and long-term goals.
