Artist's Pension Plan doesn't mean Retirement!

By Artists in Canada July 22, 2018

Here is how to secure your future as an artist.

I don't want to sound like someone's father or a broken record, but if you have the opportunity to be part of a pension plan, do it now and do it early. Companies will deduct the payment from your cheque and you will eventually learn not to miss it. Some will also contribute a percentage to your plan. Unfortunately, not all pension plans are created equal. If you leave the company or the company declares bankruptcy (like SEARS) your pension may end with it, unless you are employed by government or other large employer that allows your plan to transfer. (Even if Artists in Canada should no longer exist, you still retain your pension plan - it's yours for life).

Let's not complicate this. If you don't contribute to an RRSP or a pension plan, you don't reap the tax benefits now or income later on.

If you are an independent artist who creates art, but also supports yourself through various jobs – Artists in Canada has a pension plan for you. We started this in the Fall of 2015. It is your responsibility to take care of yourself. If you don't pay into CPP, you will not be able to collect it when the time comes (min. age 60). As a citizen of Canada you will be entitled, at age 65, to receive old Age Security (OAS) - about $500/month. It is advised to have investments or RRSP's, but this usually only happens when you have regular income and need the tax break.

How can you afford a pension plan?

Where's the money come from to contribute to your own Artist's Pension Plan that will follow you to what ever job you have right up until you start receiving the income?

The Artists In Canada Pension Plan offers you, at no cost to join, a true fixed pension plan. The allowed annual contribution has increased substantially in the past 2 years, so you should have lots of room to contribute. You will also receive the tax savings with your contribution.

MEMBERS ONLY. Artists in Canada will be starting to help sell artist members' original artwork through a new art sales gallery interface presently being designed. Artists in Canada will contribute up to 10% of each sale made on your behalf, directly into your pensiion plan. The artist will end up with 70% of the sale price including the pension contribution. If you as a member want AIC to sell your art, but don't want to be part of the Pension Plan, the artist will receive 60% of the sale. 

To participate, sign up today. Once we have confirmation you have signed up, we will work with you to get your images listed. You can contribute to the plan till the age of 71. Last years plan earned almost 10%, so it is still a good investment.

Artists in Canada looks forward to helping artist members plan for a secure future.
