LÉVIS, QC, Jan. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Desjardins Group offers its members
and clients new ways to make sense of RRSPs and TFSAs, two
indispensable tools to carry out your projects.
With the use of social media on the rise, Desjardins is ready to help
you quickly make sense of the advantages available to you through your
RRSP and TFSA. For two hours on Wednesday, January 19 (between 2 pm
and 4 pm), four tax, wealth management, stock market and financial
security specialists will answer your questions in real time on Twitter. On Wednesday, February 16, between 7 pm and 9 pm, these same experts
will hold an online discussion during a chat session on Facebook.
While using social media to shed some light on specific aspects of RRSPs
and TFSAs can be very useful, the fact remains that the best people to
advise caisse members when it comes to their retirement objectives is
still the financial advisor or financial planner of their caisse.
Moreover, the blog of Jean-Rémy Deschênes, Wealth Management Business
Coordinator, will continue to be online on the Desjardins site. The
excellent advice provided by this expert will shed more light on the
motivation behind and the reasons for contributing to one's RRSP, TFSA,
or both. "Too often we hear people say that contributing to one's RRSP
or TFSA is not worthwhile. This reasoning doesn't really make any
sense, particularly for people who have the ability to save", stated
Mr. Deschênes. "Saying no to a TFSA and RRSP is like saying no to
thousands of dollars in potential tax savings every year. This is very
significant because the tax bill often represents that largest expense
in the budget."
