LSM Insurance President, Chantal Marr, was quoted by CTV News’ Chief Financial Commentator, Patricia Lovett-Reid on Canada AM. Pattie shared Chantal’s top 5 reasons why someone with dependents should buy life insurance.
Traditional life insurance applications are not always approved easily. Insurance companies will undergo a process known as underwriting when you submit your application for coverage. This process allows carriers to determine a fair premium to charge.
Critical Illness (CI) insurance will pay you a tax-free lump sum of cash if you are diagnosed with a serious illness. You can choose which illnesses are covered and in some cases, you might be allowed to choose regular payments instead of a lump sum. This money can be used for anything you like.
