What is a life income fund (LIF)?

A Life Income Fund (LIF) or locked-in retirement income fund (LIRF) are similar to a RRIF, but for funds that originally came from a pension plan.

The funds are held in either a locked-in retirement account (LIRA) or a locked-in RRSP and then converted to a LIF.

While different provinces have different rules, both LIFs and LRIFs have both minimum and maximum annual withdrawal amounts.
