The Advantages Retirement Plan™ is a group retirement plan designed to help members of the physician community achieve a foundational level of retirement savings in a cost-effective manner. It is designed based on physician input and the general needs of the physician community. Part of the plan’s efficiency and low cost comes from its simplicity, and its focus on providing retirement income.

During enrollment, you will make a few key decisions, which you can always change in the future.
For each of these decisions, you will be provided with a default for your consideration, in case you are not sure which option to choose. These defaults are based on the general needs of the physician community. Ultimately, the choices are yours to make, and the defaults are entirely voluntary.
If you are interested in participating in the plan’s group annuity, or guaranteed lifetime income program, it will be coming soon in 2021. As you consider it, we encourage you to speak to an OMA Insurance advisor by calling 1-800-758-1641 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must be age 50 or older to purchase guaranteed lifetime income. If you are transferring in savings currently held in another RRSP or RRIF, then during enrollment you will be able to indicate the percentage of the transfer amount that you wish to use to make an annuity purchase once the transfer is received in your Advantages Retirement Plan™ RRSP. Remember that only RRSP and RRIF assets, not TFSA assets, can be used to purchase guaranteed lifetime income.
