How would a serious illness affect your family?
Critical Illness insurance is something that some know of, and some don’t. Much like Disability Insurance, this coverage is created to protect against a loss of income, but is also able to provide significant coverage for other financial needs that may arise in the time of a medical crisis. In its simplest terms, if one is diagnosed with any of a number of the covered illnesses, a lump sum, tax free benefit is paid to that individual. What this means to you is that you can choose not only what to do with your insurance benefit, but also how you will cope and deal with the specific illness for which you are experiencing.
Sadly, a Critical Illness can affect any one of us, no matter what age or gender. It usually strikes when we expect it the least, and it unfortunately does happen to many. Canadians are 3 times more likely to experience a Critical Illness than they are to die before the age of 65. Critical Illness insurance offers you choices, and allows you to recover on your own terms without having to search for additional finances to cover all of the expenses. You will also receive all of your premiums back if you don’t make a claim or if you die of another cause!
Shocking Statistics to Consider:

- 1 in 9 woman will develop breast cancer during her lifetime
- 1 in 8 men will develop prostate cancer during his lifetime

- Over 750,000 Canadians will suffer from Alzheimer’s disease between now and 2031

A Critical Illness is not something we’d like to face at any point in our lives. Because the risk of getting ill can never be eliminated completely, it’s important that we take precautions so that you’re able to make the financial choices required to make a difference when needed most.
