Ready to apply for Term Life insurance?

The purpose of life insurance is to help protect your loved ones should the unthinkable happen. The money from your life insurance could be used to take care of your loved ones living expenses, mortgage payments, outstanding debts and credit card payments, childcare and education expenses, funeral costs, or any other expenses. The money could also be left as a gift to a loved one and/or favourite charity or be used to protect the value of your estate and/or business.

As your lifestyle changes, so do your life insurance needs. Major life events like getting married, purchasing a home, having a child or buying a business can all increase your need for life insurance, making it important that you review your current life insurance coverage each year to ensure it's enough to meet your needs.

The amount of life insurance that's right for you depends on your unique personal and financial situation, including whether you have a spouse and/or children, your existing assets, your liabilities, etc.

There are four main reasons why our Term Life Insurance is a smart alternative to mortgage life insurance:

Mortgage life insurance typically pays the death benefit to the lender who holds your mortgage(s). Our Term Life Insurance will pay the death benefit directly to your beneficiary, giving them more control over how that money is spent.

With mortgage life insurance, your coverage decreases as your mortgage decreases. With our Term Life Insurance, your coverage amount stays the same.

With mortgage life insurance, you have to re-apply every time you change lending institutions or buy a new home. With our Term Life Insurance, your insurance is automatically renewed – with no medical questions asked at the time of renewal – unless you want to increase your coverage. You can cancel your plan any time you wish.

Depending on your age and health, the premiums for mortgage insurance can also be much higher than for Term Life protection by CAA.
