Coverage When It Counts
It’s insurance coverage where, if you’re diagnosed with a covered critical condition, you receive a lump-sum payment. You decide how to spend this cash. For example, if you can’t work because of your illness, this money can help cover lost income, pay the bills or cover any treatments you might need.
How it can help you
✔️ Life is full of surprises – how you spend your money shouldn’t be one of them.
✔️ Planning ahead can ease the burden of a critical illness – Unexpected health problems can throw your plans and goals off track. Getting sick can be expensive, and not all bills will be covered by provincial health plans.
✔️ Critical illness insurance can help you keep more of your money – You’ve achieved success by working hard and making wise financial decisions. It means you can enjoy your wealth how, and when, you want. But have you considered how an unexpected illness might affect your financial plan? A surprise like this could throw off your goals, and you might not be able to use your money how you intend.
✔️ Use extra money during a critical illness – You can use insurance to transfer some of the financial risk of a critical illness from you to us. Instead of spending your hard-earned money on medical bills and other costs, we’ll be there to help provide the flexibility you need to maintain your plan.
✔️ Return-of-premium allows you to get back up to 100%of the premiums you’ve paid – When you buy a critical illness insurance policy, you can add an optional return-of-premium benefit that could give you back up to 100% of the premiums you’ve paid, at a designated point in time, if you don’t make a claim on the policy.
No one expects to get sick, but serious, life-changing illnesses can emerge unexpectedly. Critical illness insurance pays you a tax-free one-time lump-sum benefit – which you can use however you choose – if you experience a covered critical condition.
