Participants have until March 1st, 2019, to contribute to their RRSP and choose to deduct contributions made from January 1st to March 1st, 2019 from their 2018 taxable income (and potentially receive a tax refund) or deduct them from their 2019 taxable income.
Desjardins Insurance will have to receive contributions and contribution files at the latest on March 1st so that the contributions will be included on the RRSP receipts for the first 60 days of the year.
Online lump sum and reccuring contributions: a quick and efficient solution
Participants can now go online to make their contributions that are not taken directly from payroll. With the Lump-Sum and Recurring Contributions section, participants can now set up pre-authorized debits directly from their bank account. Please note that online contributions are not allowed for DCPPs and SPPs1.
Participants can also send us a postmarked cheque by March 1st, 2019. It is important that they write their full name, group and plan participant number on the back.
