Retirement Savings Program

Michaels is here to help you create your retirement nest egg. The Michaels group retirement savings program offers two plans to help you save, administered by Manulife Financial: the Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) and the Deferred Profit Sharing Plan (DPSP).

  • Team Members may enrol in the RRSP at any time.
  • Michaels matches 100% on the first 3% of pay you contribute to the RRSP, plus 50% on the next 2% you contribute.
  • Save at least 5% to receive the maximum matching contribution from Michaels.
  • The money from Michaels in your DPSP is immediately vested.
  • You receive 100% of DPSP contributions if you leave Michaels or retire.
