Chartered Professional Accountant –

1. What Type of Life Insurance do you own?

We own term life insurance.

2. What factors did you consider when determining the coverage amount?

We looked at our outstanding liabilities. We also considered how much capital we would need to generate enough investment income to help meet our living expenses.

3. Do you believe in Life Insurance for Children?

No, not for young children.

4. What is The Biggest Life Insurance mistake people make?

One of the biggest mistakes is thinking that the life insurance coverage they have through their employment is enough, when it usually isn’t.

5. Outside of Life Insurance what other types of individual insurance are often over looked?

I think that disability insurance is often overlooked. Perhaps people are overly optimistic about their health and their ability to keep working forever!
