Life Insurance

Term insurance is often referred to coverage 'if' you die. Permanent insurance is a tax-free lump sum for 'when' you die. It protects you for your lifetime.

Your passing may or may not impact family or friends – but you would like the peace of mind knowing your final affairs will be looked after. Funeral costs can average up to $12,000 in Alberta. Couple this with the fact the average Albertan is carrying debts of roughly $28,000. These scenarios alone on top of others might be a good reason to consider life insurance.  Some other reasons to hold life insurance include final taxes, child or spousal support, lawyer executor fees, probate, post-secondary education for a loved one or leaving a charitable legacy.

Should these areas not pose a concern, you should consider a permanent policy to bolster your retirement savings (tax deferred). Insurance has the ability to provide you with a lifetime death benefit and also serve as a savings vehicle for your retirement or rainy-day fund.

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.
