A locked-in retirement account (LIRA) or locked-in retirement savings plan (LRSP) is a Canadian investment account designed specifically to hold locked-in pension funds for former registered pension plan (RPP) members, former spouses or common-law partners, or surviving spouses or partners.
What Makes a LIRA Halal?
The LIRA is just an account with some tax rules around it. It is how the money that is deposited into this account gets invested that will make it halal or not. The focus here should not be the account type but the underlying investments. As long as that cash is being used to buy Shariah-compliant investments such as the Manzil Halal Portfolios then you should be able to sleep peacefully at night.
Benefits of a Halal LIRA
If you leave your current job for another one, you can take your pension with you.
