Interview Opportunity - Are Canadians doing all the right things this RRSP

TORONTO, Jan. 14 /CNW/ -

WHAT: While the future of Canada's pension system is being debated, one thing is certain: saving for retirement has never been more critical. As Canadians look to make contributions to their Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) for 2010, Sun Life Financial experts are available to provide insight on a variety of retirement-related topics, including:

    -   Why the pension reform debate means Canadians should save more than
        before for retirement
    -   The importance of financial advice and why every Canadian needs a
        complete financial plan
    -   The options available for retirement strategies, including guaranteed
        investment solutions
    -   How Sun Life tools, technology and customer education can help you
        prepare for retirement, whatever your stage of life
    -   Why so many Canadians are not taking advantage of free money at work
    -   How the Tax-Free Savings Account can factor into retirement planning
    -   The importance of factoring health care costs into retirement

WHY: Modernization of Canada's pension system remains up in the air, and many working Canadians do not have access to a company-sponsored pension plan. These facts, combined with increased market volatility, require Canadians to save more for retirement than ever before. Now is the time to examine your financial plan and ensure that your investments will meet your needs.

WHO: Our spokespeople can talk about what's really important to Canadians and their future retirement needs. With the unknowns surrounding pension reform and market volatility, we can talk about what solutions might be right for you.
