Canadian Pension Plan (CPP)
Once you hit 18 (and were earning a wage), your money started contributing to the Canada Pension plan, a social insurance program that provides financial protection to contributors like you in the event of retirement, disability, or death. The higher your salary and the more time you’ve worked, the larger your pension will be.

All right. No one wants to think this far into the future, but everyone needs to. If you pass away without a plan, the government distributes your estate according to provincial law. The only way to ensure your wishes are fulfilled and your estate is protected is by planning ahead and making a will.

Making a Will
Everyone should have an up-to-date plan in place to ensure financial matters are resolved quickly and their loved ones lose as little as possible to taxation. An up-to-date will means regularly adjusting your plan as life events happen, you acquire new assets (and family members!), and make new investments. It’s best to work with a professional to make sure everything is up to scratch - that’s where we come in.

Organizing your Estate
This is more complicated than simply picking heirs and dividing your belongings. You can start by determining all of your assets including pensions, investments, stocks and bonds, real estate, personal property, and anything you own jointly. You’ll also need to identify the beneficiaries for your RRSPs and insurance policies.
