LIRAs and LIFs

Locked-in retirement accounts (LIRAs) and life income funds (LIFs) are transfer instruments used to transfer amounts that have accrued in supplemental pension plans (also called pension funds or pension plans) subject to the Supplemental Pension Plans Act or other Québec legislation such as RREGOP, or voluntary retirement savings plan (VRSP) locked-in accounts.

An LIRA is a retirement savings vehicule (accumulation), while an LIF is used to draw a retirement income (withdrawal).

LIRAs and LIFs governed by the Supplemental Pension Plans Act are under the supervision of Retraite Québec.
