As your family grows and changes, your protection needs will also shift.

I will walk you through what you need to know and at what time to make protecting your family seamless. Should you, family or friends need help with your death or disability claim – I am also here to help during these difficult times.

Life Insurance for Families

Disabilities, sickness and death greatly impact families in many ways. The loss of a spouse's income during these times can cause significant hardship. Outstanding balances on a mortgage, car loan(s) or other long-term debts can become big challenges.

Without proper coverage, a family can be forced to sell their home during unfavorable market conditions causing more stress and financial loss. Child care or plans for post-secondary education can also become compromised if you have children.  

For an empty nester without proper coverage you can deplete your nest egg rapidly from a health issue. Alternately you may live longer than expected and as a result not have enough money in the bank for final taxes, funeral costs or gifting a family legacy. 

Should these areas not pose a concern, you should consider other options to bolster your retirement savings (tax deferred).

Term 10, 20, 30, or Pick a Term

One of the most popular products due to its initial low cost. Term insurance provides a tax-free lump sum over a specific 'Term'. Usually 10, 20, or 30 years. Additional coverages include ‘Pick your term’ which provide a specific period or window of time to be protected (i.e. child/spousal support, non-traditional mortgage amortizations, or funding for business succession plans at retirement).

Some common applications for term insurance are: income shortfall of a working spouse, child care, outstanding business or home mortgages, tax liabilities, and post-secondary education for children left behind – are just a few.

Benefits and Riders

To illustrate riders, let's compare this to purchasing a new vehicle from the dealership. Most cars have a base model available. The insurance equivalent can be (but not limited to) your Life, Disability, or Critical Illness policy. Cars also have the ability to have options and accessories added to their base model. This would be like 'riders'. Riders can add one or many different layers of function and value. The benefit of riders is that you can customize your policy to your needs and wants.
