Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)

Kick start your savings in a Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA). This savings account is flexible enough to be used for an emergency fund, to purchase a new car, renovate a house, start a small business or take a family vacation, while also saving for the future.

TFSA Features:

  • Earn investment income tax free inside the account.
  • Contributions are not tax deductible; withdrawals are not taxable.
  • Contribute up to $5,500 in 2016.
  • Carry forward unused contribution room.
  • Flexibility in how much and when you want to withdraw and re-contribute.
  • Neither income earned in a TFSA nor withdrawals will affect your eligibility for federal income-tested benefits and credits.

You can hold most Term Deposits within your TFSA, including SASCU's Market Linked Term Deposits! Or go with a more accessible Investor Savings Plan.

    Unused contribution room from 2009 carried forward. Ask your SASCU Service Representative for more information.
