Desjardins deadlines for 2020 withdrawal requests
The purpose of the Group RRSP is to help you save for your retirement, so think carefully before making a withdrawal. However, if you do decide to make a withdrawal, for the income to count towards the 2020 fiscal year, you need to take certain deadlines into account, depending on how you make your withdrawal request:
- Online (preferred approach): Plan members have until 4:00 pm (ET) on December 31, 2020, to request a withdrawal online.
- By phone: Plan members have until 4:00 pm (ET) on December 31, 2020, to call the Desjardins Customer Contact Centre to request a withdrawal.
- By fax or mail: Plan members must send Desjardins their withdrawal request by December 20, 2020.*
If you have any questions, call the Desjardins Customer Contact Centre at 1-800-968-3587, Monday to Friday, from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm (ET). One of their agents will be happy to help you!
*Please allow 5 to 10 business days for Desjardins to process requests received by fax or mail.
