Bank retirement funds

As a total newb to the retirement scene i am wondering how a bank runs a retirement fund account.I have a good pension from my employer but i also have about $60000 in the bank as a guaranteed investment (GiC) if i turned this $60k into an income fund would the bank just take the monthly payout from the capital? or do they just pay me the interest on the $60k? and what kind of monthly payment could i expect on $60k?:confused:

By the lack of response I guess an Individual Pension Plan set up by a bank must be a local phenomenon'.

Perhaps if you provided a symbol or more info it would be easier to respond.

Most "GIC"s are a selection in a 401K, like a stable value account. Banks offer them in their 401K's because they are deathly afraid of their employees taking risk, and would prefer them to underperform over the years..........

I guess the American equivalent would be a 401k or as we call them in Canada Registered Retirement savings plan that is accumulated year by year and has some tax benefits when purchased,it is usually invested in mutual funds or the more secure "guaranteed investments".I'll probably end up talking to the bank about it but in this computer age most banking is done on line and as a result the main bank has closed all its branch offices so its quite a drive to get to it..

It's not a requirement......anonymity is a powerful thing.........

Well, I AM strange, because and my location is Texas...

$60k should provide maybe $3k/yr (at 5% interest), so $250/mo, without touchng principle. Not adjusted for inflation.
