What is an IPP?
An Individual Pension Plan (IPP) is a defined benefit pension plan registered with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), and the provincial regulator if applicable. It allows individuals between the ages of 40-71 to substantially increase their retirement savings compared to an RRSP. Expenses incurred in plan administration and asset management are deductible to the corporation, maximizing the assets available for tax-sheltered growth.
What is an FPP?
An Family Pension Plan (FPP) is a defined benefit plan with all the features of an IPP with one added bonus — residual assets are not deemed taxable upon death of the last surviving spouse. Rather, assets stay in the plan for the benefit of the remaining active family plan members.
