Financial experts advise that there are two things we all should do as part of a good personal financial plan. First, they advise that we should save up to 10% of our earnings as part of a “pay yourself” habit. And second, they say that a portion of those savings should be set aside as an emergency fund.

The good news for CEIRP members is that you can open a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) through the plan and then you can set up regular transfers through your banking as bill payments.

  • By automating the transfer, you will barely notice that it’s been reallocated.
  • Also, you’re able to take advantage of Canada Life’s funds, low fees and your savings will grow tax free.
  • All this means that your emergency fund will grow quickly and you’ll be ready in case of an emergency.
