A Closer Look: CAA Non-Medical Life Insurance
CAA's Non-Medical Life Insurance, tagged "Guaranteed Issue Life" is offered to CAA members between the ages of 40-75. There are no medical exams and the application offers a 20% discount to non-smokers. The other features of the policy are listed below:
- Rates never increase and the policy is paid up by age 100.
- The plan pays five times the face amount if the insured dies by accident before the age of 75.
- The death benefit is limited in the first two years. Should the applicant die by a non-accident, the death benefit is restricted to a return of premium plus 10% interest.
- The plan has a built-in living benefit advance feature, which pays out up to 50% of the death benefit if the insured is diagnosed with a terminal illness and given less than 12 months to live. One caveat of this feature though, the policy must be in-force for two years.
On the downside, the pricing of the plan is not very competitive when stacked up against CAA's primary non-medical life insurance competitors. Below are examples of the CAA Guaranteed Issue Life Plan versus the Canada Protection Plan and Assumption Life for a 60-year-old female, non-smoker:
CAA Guaranteed issue @ $25,000 of coverage: $108.20/month
Assumption Life Golden Protection @ $25,000 of coverage: $82.49/month
CPP Simplified Life @ $25,000 of coverage: $80.78/month
The Assumption Life Plan and CPP plan do have some health questions, but the coverage, unlike the CAA Guaranteed Issue Plan, takes effect from day one.
