It's RRSP season! The contribution deadline is March 1, 2019

Tis the season for RRSPs! March 1, 2019 is the deadline for you to submit your plan's RRSP contributions for the 2018 tax year. You can submit your contributions online or by mail.

  • Online: Contributions submitted by an electronic file upload must be received by 2 p.m. ET, March 1, 2019.

Plan members can access and download RRSP tax slips online by signing in to mysunlife.ca. Any plan member who has elected for digital delivery only will not receive printed tax slips in 2019.

How we're encouraging members to save
In addition, Sun Life is reminding eligible plan members of the March 1, 2019 RRSP contribution deadline.

Over the coming months, Ella will communicate about the benefits of an RRSP on the mysunlife.ca home page, the my Sun Life Mobile app, and through email communications.
