Living your Legacy

A few weeks ago, fellow Kamazooie member, Brad, posted a blog on preserving your financial legacy. At that time, I commented that I wanted to come back and talk more about the non-financial legacy so here comes that.

If you know me, or if you've read my blogs, you may have caught on that I'm a little preoccupied with legacy. Maybe its a fear of dying, or maybe it’s because I struggle with the dreaded "meaning of life". Maybe still, I've seen some great men and women and I aspire to do…

Chasing the dream...

 Ok, perhaps the title overstates it a bit. But ever since I was a young lad I liked to sing.

The Perils of Mortgage Insurance

Do you have a mortgage? Did you sign up for mortgage insurance? This is usually found at the end of the mortgage application. You answer a few simple health questions and you're done. Right? Wrong.

Here's why:

  1. The lending institution owns and controls the policy. They decide who the beneficiary is and it's not you. Not your spouse. They are. They control the use of the death benefit.
  2. Policies can be cancelled at any time without your approval.

Top 10 RRSP Tips

Hi folks,

Here are my top 10 tips to get the most out of your Registered Retirement Savings Plan:

  1. Maximize Your Contribution. A $10,000 contribution equals $4,500 in deferred tax savings (assuming your tax bracket is 45%). Got lots of contribution room? Consider a RRSP loan. The tax savings should exceed the interest paid on the loan.
