Talk to your Advisor about protecting you, your family or your business.

It’s important to review any life insurance policy regularly and consider:

  • Have your longer term goals for the coverage or policy values changed?
  • Is your current coverage sufficient?

An advisor can help you answer your questions or help you review your coverage.

Bank Mortgage Insurance

Take a closer look!

  • Bank mortgage insurance pays only the outstanding mortgage balance at the time of death.  Your insurance coverage decreases as time goes by, but your premiums either remain the same or increase.
  • Bank mortgage insurance pays out only once on a first to die basis even though you are paying for two individual lives.
  • The bank is the owner and beneficiary of your plan, you are jus the insured.
  • If your medical condition changes during your mortgage period, you could be subject to a medical to prove your insurability.
  • The bank’s mortgage insurance is not convertible or portable.

Personal Mortgage Insurance

It’s about balance, flexibility and control.

  • We always pay the original mortgage balance at the time of death.
  • There is a double payout with personally owned mortgage insurance because we pay on each insured’s death.
  • You are the owner of your plan, therefore your family is the beneficiary.
  • Guaranteed insurability with an insurance company states that you will never be subject to another medical through the entire time that you own your personal mortgage insurance.
  • By owning your own mortgage insurance policy, it is convertible and portable at any time.
[reveal title="Term Life Insurance" open="false" color="grey-lite"]Protection for the Term you Select

Term Life insurance is designed to provide you with insurance protection for a set period of time, at an affordable price.  If you die within the time period,  your beneficiaries can receive the amount specified in your policy, tax-free.

Term life insurance is easy to purchase.   Simply contact us to speak or arrange a face-to-face meeting with, one of our Insurance Representatives.

Your health and lifestyle can save you money

Depending on your age, health, and the amount of insurance you need and your lifestyle, you could qualify for even lower rates.  For instance non-smokers pay less than smokers.

Choose the term that suits you

When choosing term insurance, it’s important to choose the term that will cover you through important life events.  With term life insurance, you’re able to choose a benefit amount and a term that will best meet your needs.

Remember too that with our term insurance policies, you have the option of converting to a permanent plan offered for conversion, up to the age specified in the policy.

[reveal title="Critical Illness Insurance" open="false" color="grey-lite"]Critical illness insurance is a relatively new form of protection that provides money when you are still alive.  It has tremendous flexibility if you become critically ill because there are no requirements for how you spend the lump-sum benefits you receive.  You don’t have to get approval for expenditures, provide any receipts, or even use the lump-sum benefit to pay for medical expenses.

Critical illness insurance provides you with a lump-sum payment to be used however you see fit.  If you want to try alternative therapies, be treated outside of the country, hire someone to take care of you, or hire a nanny to take care of your children…you choose how to spend your money.

Critical Illness Insurance covers specific illnesses only.

A critical illness plan provides a way of helping to protect yourself against the high cost of rebuilding your lifestyle following a critical illness.  It offers a lump-sum payment while you are living which usually becomes payable 30 days after the diagnosis of one of the critical illness insured conditions as defined in the policy.  How you use it is up to you.

What do you take for granted?

[list style="arrow" color="black"]
  • Get out of bed.
  • Go to the washroom.
  • Get dressed.
  • Have some food.

Sounds pretty simple.  You don’t even have to think about it.  These are abilities you take for granted.  But we’re all vulnerable to accidents and illnesses that can change the way we live.

Imagine not being as able as you are.

Life is unpredictable.  Prepare yourself.  Eventually, you may need long term care.

Long term care takes many forms, from in-home nursing to full service facility care.  For example:

[list style="arrow" color="black"]
  • nursing care
  • rehabilitation and therapy
  • personal care (help with activities of daily living like dressing, eating and bathing)
  • homemaking services (meal preparation, cleaning, laundry)
  • supervision by another person

It’s not cheap.  And the ins and outs of the long-term care service industry are not easy to navigate because of different legislation and different standards across the country.

The value of knowledge

It’s important to have a realistic expectation of what your needs may be if faced with a condition that makes it impossible for you to care for yourself.

Long term care insurance helps pay for long term care services.
