Transferring to your RRIF
Usually, you can only contribute to a RRIF by directly transferring certain amounts you receive or are considered to have received.
You can have more than one RRIF and you can have self-directed RRIFs. The rules that apply to self-directed RRIFs are generally the same as those for self-directed RRSPs. For more information, see Self-directed RRSPs. You cannot transfer any part of your retirement allowance to a RRIF.
You can contribute to your RRIF by having property transferred directly from:
- your PRPP or unmatured RRSP
- your matured RRSP, including a direct transfer of a commutation payment from your RRSP annuity
- an unmatured RRSP under which your current or former spouse, or common-law partner is the annuitant. For more information concerning this type of transfer, see Property from an unmatured RRSP
