However, unlike annuities and other pension payment options, the RF Personal Retirement Account gives you control over your pension account while helping you grow your retirement savings. This means you decide how much and when you receive pension payouts, whether it is monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually,or whether you leave your money invested without taking any income at all.
We are able to customize each account to meet your needs, including providing:
- A wide range of attractive investment options with the flexibility to change investments;
- The flexibility to choose when, how much and how frequently to receive your pension payments;
- The flexibility to add and withdraw funds to and from the account as you wish;
- Prompt transfer of the balance of your account to your beneficiaries in the event of your death.
