What to do with your TFSA (before Trudeau trims it)

Well, it happened. The Liberals have won a majority, and now it’s time for Justin Trudeau to make good on all the party promises he made—including his pledge to trim the annual Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) contribution limit from $10,000 to $5,500, starting in 2016. For many Canadians, that raises some questions.  Such as: What should you do with your TFSA in the meantime? Should you scramble to top up your TFSA today, in case it shrinks tomorrow? And how will this affect my savings goals? Relax. You can top up your TFSA when and if you can and put that money to work for you by investing it wisely.

Handling High-Yield Savings Accounts

For most Americans opening a savings account is the first step in taking control of their personal finances. And while a savings account can be an important, safe way to keep cash available, a standard savings account is going to earn a scant amount of interest and, when factoring in inflation, could actually lose money for depositors over time. Many high-yield or high-interest savings accounts offer the same Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) coverage as banks and thrifts (or National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) insurance for state-chartered credit unions) and pay a significantly higher rate of interest.

After a good rate of return and easy access to funds: Top Ten savings accounts on offer

Here are my thoughts on the best of the best as of today’s date:1.     The Santander 123 Current Account, this little gem offers an impressive 3%, which is higher than most savings accounts, this is on balances of £3000. 00 - £20000. 00, and of course being a current account you have instant access, but be warned there is a monthly charge of £2. 00 and it must be used as a current account with at least £500. 00 deposited every month and two active direct debits, it does however give you cash back on your direct debits and 3%: on mobile, home phone, broadband & paid for TV packages.

Seek More Yield On Your Cash

A place for your cash ✔Savings accounts continue to offer historically low yields. ✔Choosing the right option for cash depends on your goals, attitude, and needs. ✔Higher yields exist, but may require you to accept less liquidity or more risk. ✔CDs may be available to provide higher yields, while maintaining FDIC insurance. ✔Short-duration bonds and bond funds may offer more yield. While stock markets have rallied in recent years and helped investment account balances, money in savings accounts has not kept up. Low rates have meant meager interest for cash savings—nationally the average savings account paid just 0.
