Our second in a series of close look assessments of three of the leading long-term care insurance plans in Canada is coming at you now. We began with Sun Life, but now we examine Desjardins Insurance’s Long-term Care Plan.

Pros

  • A major benefit is that the client gets to use the funds as he/she sees fit and not necessarily in any care facility.

Cons

  • Premiums are only guaranteed for the first five years.

  • The policy is a bit high at $150/year.

The following is an example of pricing for a 60-year-old, female non-smoker: $232.31/month We should also mention that premiums are lower for men.
