Purchasing life insurance helps to ensure that your family will not be faced with financial hardships in your absence. Life insurance provides a payment of a specific amount, upon the insurer’s death. This payment can be made either to the estate or a designated beneficiary.   There are many factors to consider in choosing a plan design:

  • Term Insurance (10 or 20 Year)
    Term life insurance is to provide coverage of financial responsibilities for the insured or their beneficiaries upon death. Term life insurance is generally chosen earlier in your career stage in favor of permanent life insurance because it is usually much less expensive.
  • Universal Life Insurance
    This combines both insurance and an opportunity to invest in a ‘tax sheltered’ investment environment. In Canada, UL insurance is the most popular vehicle outside of a RRSP’s where you can accumulate money on a tax-sheltered basis. The difference is UL is paid out tax free compared to RRSP’s which are fully taxable at death.
  • Whole Life insurance 
    Offer a “cash value” which was designed to be a cash reserve that would build up against the known claim-–the death benefit. These policies would also credit guaranteed interest to the cash value account. Upon maturity of the contract, the cash value would equal the death benefit. By guaranteeing the death benefit, the policy owner was assured that insurance coverage would be in force when the insured died, allowing them to unlock and exploit other assets
