1 RETIREMENT PLAN KAREN AND BILL SWIRE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO AS AT JANUARY 1, 2012 PREPARED BY DAVID GOBEIL, CA, CFP NOVEMBER 4, 2011 VERSION DRAFT Sample retirement plan prepared with The Canadian Retirement Planner s Software For information visit

2 Karen and William Swire 123 Main Street Anywhere, Canada Dear Karen and Bill, Personal Financial Planner's Comments This Retirement Plan has been prepared solely for your use in arranging your financial affairs to progress towards meeting your retirement objectives. I have prepared this Retirement Plan, which includes projections of post-retirement incomes from information and assumptions supplied by you. The assumptions used are not certain to occur and other events not reflected in the assumptions may occur. If events do not occur as assumed, the actual results achieved may vary significantly from the projected outcome. Your objective is essentially to maintain lifestyle expenditures of $85,000 per year in current dollars plus some inflation protection. Based upon the assumptions in the plan, you should be able to meet your objective by making the contributions to your RRSPs and TFSAs, and saving small amounts of tax-paid capital as specified in the enclosed Annual Savings Plans. However, you may find that making the maximum contributions to your RRSPs and TFSAs does not leave you with the funds that you want for your lifestyle before retirement. You should also consider that, once you have the mortgage paid off and your children have completed their post-secondary educations, you will have lower expenditures and will be able to more readily save for retirement. Retirement planning is an ongoing activity and we should review your plan every couple of years, determining your investment returns and reconsidering your expectations for retirement. You will appreciate that tax-planning advice is based upon interpretation of the law including the general antiavoidance rule and experience with the revenue authorities. Accordingly, the conclusions reached and views expressed are often matters of opinion, rather than certainty. Yours very truly, David David Gobeil, CA, CFP November 15, 2011 Page 2

Retirement Objectives The purpose of the retirement plan is to determine how you can use your financial resources to meet your retirement objectives, which are: to accumulate the funds to retire when Bill is turning 62 years of age; and to be able to maintain your standard of living as measured by lifestyle expenditures of $85,000 per year in current dollars plus some inflation protection of say 2.5%.

Accumulation Plan for Retirement Your current savings for retirement and your additional savings planned until retirement should accumulate to the amount of funds that you require for retirement. As you approach retirement, you will want to monitor your savings to determine that there is no significant shortfall. Your accumulation plan for retirement specifies the amount of funds that you would like to have accumulated at the end of each year until retirement. The savings plan was prepared based upon your RRSP and TFSA contribution room and your ability to save for retirement. These amounts should be adequate to meet your retirement objectives.

16 10. Strategies to Meet Your Objectives The purpose of the retirement plan is to determine how you can use your financial resources to meet your retirement objectives which are: to accumulate the funds to retire when Bill is 62 years of age; and to be able to maintain your standard of living as measured by lifestyle expenditures of $85,000 per year in current dollars plus some inflation protection. Based upon the assumptions in the plan, you should be able to meet your objective by making the contributions to your RRSPs and TFSAs, and saving small amounts of tax-paid capital as specified in the enclosed Annual Savings Plans. Based upon the assumptions in the plan, the savings program should enable you to maintain lifestyle expenditures of $85,000 per year in current dollars plus some inflation protection. There is obviously a tradeoff between current expenditures and expenditures after retirement that you need to discuss and consider. November 15, 2011 Page 16
