SAY NO TO YOUR BANKS MORTGAGE INSURANCE!.. Make sure you watch the disturbing investigation on CBC'S MARKETPLACE to find out why!

 

“Casey you are definitely the man!  You saved my wife and I over $120 dollars per month for the same exact coverage, just by getting us preferred insurance rates that our last advisor never even mentioned!  I guess it definitely was worth our time to have you review our existing policies!…thanks again for all of your help.”

 

Dave Degrassi & Jessica Robinson, Mississauga, Ontario


 

“We had Sunlife Insurance advisor that sold us some insurance and then we never heard from him ever again.  After speaking with Casey he clearly showed us why the type of insurance we had was not benefiting us at all, and had really only benefited the agent who sold it to us.  Thankfully we now have the proper type of insurance that will protect our family when we need it most, and we’re very grateful to have Casey as our financial advisor. It’s very clear that Casey’s always looking out for our best interests before his own, and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for solid unbiased financial advice!”

 

Ben & Sheena Poitven, Oakville, Ontario


 

“Thankfully my wife and I were referred to Casey for a second opinion on our insurance policies.  Not only did he clearly explain all of our available options to us, but he was very patient and didn’t pressure us to buy anything in anyway.  After listening to his recommendations based on our specific situation, Casey was able to give us a much better insurance policy that was not only less expensive but was also for more insurance coverage!  Thanks to Casey’s advice we’re now saving money every month that we will definitely be investing with F1RST CHO1CE as well.  We would highly recommend Casey’s advice for any insurance or other financial planning needs.”

 

Mark & Magdelena Budisa, Streetsville, Ontario


 

“My wife and I have been clients for several years now, and in that time, we’ve conducted numerous transactions with both Casey and Wayne from mortgage refinancing to life insurance to managing our investments. These individuals have demonstrated that they have superior knowledge of their respective products and are able to deliver them with exceptional customer service. I have found that this combination is a rarity these days, and as such, I whole heartedly recommend their service to both friends and family with confidence.”

 

Clifton Sookdeo & Shelly Sharma, Caledon, Ontario


 

“Honesty, integrity, and professionalism are the three words that come to my mind when I hear Casey’s name. He has provided my clients over the years with the highest level of service and they always thank me for introducing them to him. Casey truly goes above and beyond.”

 

Deborah Robinson, Real Estate Agent – Royal Lepage


 

“We’re extremely thankful that we came in contact with Casey otherwise we would have the worst type of insurance coverage available! Our bank really pushed us to sign up for the mortgage insurance they were offering which we thought was a good thing.  If Casey hadn’t helped us to understanding the many disadvantages of the insurance offered through a bank, we still be overpaying for less beneficial coverage that may not have even paid out if we ever needed it!  Thanks again for your advice Casey, and going forward we will definitely be coming to you for our future mortgage, insurance, and other financial advice.”

INSURANCE PROCESS:

 

Many people find it overwhelming trying to choose the right insurance solution for their specific needs.  At F1RST CHO1CE Insurance Solutions we guide our clients every step of the way, to ensure that the process of deciding on the right type of product and the right amount of coverage, is a positive learning experience rather than something that we all know we need to do.

We make the process simple and hassle free.  The following 6 steps will ensure that your insurance goals are achieved and that you walk away with the exact type and amount of insurance you need.

 

STEP #1 Identify Goals & Objectives:  The first step in defining your insurance needs is to figure out exactly what you would like your insurance to do for you and your family.

STEP #2 Analyze:  Our team will review the information you’ve provided us in order to make sure that there is a fit between what we can offer you and what you’re looking for.

STEP #3 Professional Recommendations:  We will then offer you our professional recommendation(s) along with the specific insurance products and strategies that we believe will best fit your needs.

STEP #4 Client Feedback:  We would like to hear your opinions on what we’ve recommended. Choosing the right insurance product is a very important decision, and we don’t want to simply choose for you.

STEP #5 Implementation:  If you feel that our recommendation will help you achieve all that we’ve discussed together, we can now start the process of implementing them one step at a time.

STEP #6 Continuous Management: We will continue to monitor your policies to ensure that your goals are achieved.

 

BUYING INSURANCE:

Make sure you get the right insurance to meet your needs, which may change over time. Be sure to evaluate your situation from time to time, as you may need to update your policy after major life events such as:  Starting a family, Buying a home, Starting a business or Planning for your retirement.

Your decisions about the type and amount of insurance you get will depend on your situation, your budget, your personal beliefs and the value of what you are insuring. Know what insurance coverage you already have so that you do not buy unnecessary coverage. For example, your employer’s benefits plan may offer supplementary health coverage, or travel health insurance may be included if you pay for your trip with a credit card.

When Buying Insurance:

Evaluate your situation to determine what risks you may need to insure against. You may also wish to have an emergency savings fund to protect you against some of the smaller financial risks.

Shop around and compare both the coverage and the prices. Some policies may be cheaper but may not offer the same level of service or coverage.

Work with a trusted independent insurance broker who’s able to shop the markets for you. An independent broker offers you the advantage of working with many carriers as opposed to a captive agent who’s generally limited to a single insurance carrier. Because of this, the selection process with a captive agent can be skewed towards one insurance company.

 

QUALIFYING FOR INSURANCE:

It has been said that responsible people buy life insurance for one of two reasons; they either love someone or they owe someone. However, purchasing life insurance is not as easy as buying any other type of financial product. Just because someone wants life insurance and is willing to pay for it, does not automatically mean that an insurance company will offer to insure them.

Once someone applies for life insurance coverage, the application must go through a strict underwriting process by the insurance company before an individual is eligible to even purchase the policy. Insurance companies will evaluate whether they will issue a policy based on certain criteria, such as:

• your age and medical history
• any previous claims you have made
• the amount of coverage you are requesting.

No matter what type of insurance you are applying for, be sure to answer all questions on the application fully and honestly. If you don’t, your policy could be cancelled and any claim you make in the future could be refused.
