During your employment years you have accumulated assets. You may own hard assets such as a house, a vehicle, perhaps a cottage, rental property and so on. You may have an employer-sponsored pension plan, personal savings in an RRSP or a non-registered account. You may have a tax-free savings account. When you retire, you may be entitled to receive government pension benefits such as the Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security.
During your working years you are said to be in the accumulation phase of wealth creation, followed by a consolidation-of-assets phase, in the later years of employment.
On the day of your retirement, you enter the de-accumulation phase. This is when you begin to create your own paycheque from the assets you have at hand. Your employment paycheque ends and your retirement paycheque starts. You create an income from your accumulated assets, to support your chosen life style. You create an income stream that is hopefully guaranteed for the rest of your life.
