Plan ahead for the 2014 RRSP contribution reporting deadline

January 12, 2015

Monday, March 2, 2015, is the deadline for you to submit your plan's RRSP contributions for the 2014 tax year.

  • Online: Contributions submitted by an electronic file upload must be received by 2 p.m. ET, March 2, 2015. Please note: On March 2 only, the deadline for contributions keyed manually on the Plan Sponsor Services website will be extended to 11:59 p.m. ET.
  • Mail: Mailed RRSP contributions must be received by Sun Life Financial by the March 2, 2015 deadline. Contributions date stamped by Sun Life Financial after this date will be applied towards the 2015 tax year.

Reminder: RRSP campaign for members
Earlier this month, we launched an RRSP campaign to encourage members to contribute to their Group RRSPs before the March 2, 2015, deadline <see
RRSP campaign to boost contributions and hit deadlines for details>. The campaign promotes:

  • the benefits of contributing to an RRSP
  • the new lump sum contribution feature on my Sun Life Mobile for those who have access to the mobile app
  • extended Customer Care Centre hours on Saturday, February 21 and Saturday, February 28 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET
  • how to access duplicate RRSP receipts and tax slips from mysunlife.ca.

These messages are being communicated via mysunlife.ca, alert emails, the Customer Care Centre and on the year-end annual statements.

Promotional materials for RRSP season
Now is a great time for you to promote the RRSP season – and our lump sum contribution feature on my Sun Life Mobile if applicable – with your plan members. Your Group Retirement Services representative will have materials to help you create a campaign for your organization.
