Spouse passes in 2014 and has a large amount of RRSP remaining.

Does the spouse get slips showing the transfer of the RRSP to her or are there no slips issued??  She did receive some RRSP slips with showing very small amounts in the deposited amount area, even though she did not purchase RRSP in 2014

If the spouse was a beneficiary of the plan then there would be a T4RSP to the beneficiary and with a transfer there would also be a RRSP contribution with a note in one of the boxes saying it's a transfer under a section of the tax act which allows you to increase the RRSP room by the amount of the transfer.

Some institutions may not use this process as it is a transfer they may process as a direct transfer where no slips are issued.

either way in the end a RRSP rollover isn't taxable.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
