Important TFSA Note

Beneficiary vs Successor Holder

For any TFSA you can name a beneficiary but you can also name a successor holder. You can do one, the other, or both.
The best way to describe the difference is that a beneficiary would get the money, but a successor holder would get the account.
That means that a beneficiary of a TFSA would receive all the money within the TFSA tax-free but then the TFSA would get shut down. A beneficiary will lose all that tax-free space. Unless the beneficiary has TFSA contribution room available they will start to be taxed on any investment gains going forward.

A successor holder on the other hand would receive the account with the money inside it. A successor holder would get to keep all that tax-free room. The TFSA is now theirs. If they make a withdrawal they would get that contribution room back the next year. That’s amazing!
