Registered Retirement Income Fund

In Canada, a tax-deferred retirement plan that invests the funds the holder has placed in a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) and pays the beneficiary out of the income from those investments. Generally speaking, one does not buy an RRIF directly, but rather rolls over funds from an RRSP, which one may do anytime by the age of 71. The advantage to an RRIF is that it allows one to invest tax-free until one actually receives the income from those investments.
