Pooled Registered Pension Plan cost comparison table

The following table compares the “costs” of federally registered Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPPs).

Costs are defined as “all fees, levies and other charges that reduce a member’s return on investment other than those that are triggered by the member’s actions.” The table below does not include fees, levies and other charges that members may incur through their own actions. These may include fees for withdrawals, transfers, duplicate statements and other services. These charges will vary, depending on the PRPP administrator. For more information, contact the PRPP administrator.

PRPP availability

Federal PRPP legislation applies only to self-employed persons and employees of either federally regulated businesses and industries (banks, telecommunications companies, interprovincial transportation sectors, etc.) or of employers located in the Yukon, Northwest Territories or Nunavut.Footnote 1
