Great-West Life Assurance Unveils Federal Pooled Registered Pension Plans

The Great-West Life Assurance Company has announced the availability of federal pooled registered pension plans, or PRPPs, to help provide improved access to group retirement savings plans to employees of federally regulated employers. While the PRPP is available to federally regulated employers only, such as banking, extra-provincial transport and aircraft transport, it is intended to be a framework for provinces that must enact their own legislation in order to offer a PRPP. At the forefront is the Quebec government, whose voluntary retirement savings plan (VRSP) legislation took effect on July 1, 2014. Aarssen encourages all provinces to follow suit with "harmonized legislation that helps employers offer their employees universal access to retirement savings plans and lock in contributions to help preserve accumulated assets earmarked for retirement savings".
