Characteristics of a life income fund (LIF)

A life income fund is a special registered retirement income fund (RRIF) into which a person can transfer the amounts that are in his or her supplemental pension plan, the locked-in account of a voluntary retirement savings plan (VRSP) or locked-in retirement account (LIRA).

Unlike RRIFs, which have no ceiling on withdrawals, it is not possible to withdraw from an LIF more than the maximum authorized for the year.
