Several Types of Coverage
Learn about some of the options available that can cover you against loss of income or the costs of medical care.
Every day, accidents and unexpected illnesses strike people down across the province. What if something were to happen to you that would stop your flow of income? Would your family be able to continue paying the mortgage and other costs of living?
Disability insurance pays a monthly benefit to help replace lost income if you cannot work due to a sickness or injury.
It’s especially important if you are self-employed, as a disability could be financially devastating. If you are an employee with group coverage, you could still need personal Disability insurance to cover areas where the group plan may be lacking.
Critical Illness Insurance
If you are diagnosed with cancer or suffer a heart attack or other serious medical condition, the costs of care, even in Canada where much of our medical service needs are provided for, can be devastating. Cancer drugs can cost many thousands of dollars per dose. Specialized treatments for some illnesses can cripple a family financially.
Critical Illness insurance provides a tax-free lump sum benefit to cover associated costs. You can use the benefit for out-of-country treatment, home nursing care, to cover an extended recuperation period or however you wish.
This can be especially important for small business owners who, because of eligible tax deductions on their home-based business, might have low taxable income. Because Disability Insurance will only pay out a percentage of taxable income, Critical Illness Insurance may be a better choice.
Long-Term Care Insurance
The cost of long-term care for yourself or a family member is expensive and can lead to the loss of your home or life savings.
If illness or failing health prevents you from caring for yourself, you may need to move to a long term care facility or receive comprehensive care at home. But high costs, not covered by government benefits, could be unaffordable or deplete your assets.
Long Term Care insurance can help cover the costs of home care or a long term care residence with tax-free benefits.
