A type of flexible permanent life insurance offering the low-cost protection of term life insurance as well as a savings element (like whole life insurance) which is invested to provide a cash value buildup. The death benefit, savings element and premiums can be reviewed and altered as a policyholder’s circumstances change. In addition, unlike whole life insurance, universal life insurance allows the policyholder to use the interest from his or her accumulated savings to help pay premiums.
Universal life insurance provides permanent life insurance protection with a tax-advantaged investment component. As cash values accumulate, they can be used to pay part or all of the cost of your insurance.
In addition to providing security and protection through its life insurance component, universal life insurance can provide an additional source of income for emergencies, retirement or for estate planning needs.
You select an investment mix that’s best for you—taking into account the amount of risk you’re comfortable with, and your financial goals and circumstances.
With Canada Life’s universal life insurance you can customize solutions that change over time to fit your evolving lifestyle, budget and savings objectives.
The total account value in your policy can grow on a tax-advantaged basis within limits. The insurance proceeds paid to your beneficiary upon your death are tax-free and may include the total account value you’ve been accumulating over the years.
Term life insurance is well-suited to meet high, short-term protection needs for the lowest initial cost. For example, a couple with young children and a mortgage might select term life insurance as an affordable way to get the full coverage they need today.
Term life insurance coverage can do a good job of meeting immediate needs and may provide the opportunity to later move or convert to permanent life insurance without providing proof of health.
Term plans may also be renewable after 5, 10 or 20 years without providing proof of health. The price increases as appropriate for your age at renewal. You can convert a term 10 plan to a term 20 plan between the first and fifth policy anniversary or the insured’s 65th birthday, which ever is earliest.You can purchase term life insurance as an initial step before purchasing permanent life insurance.

Critical illness insurance is a form of protection that can provide you with a lump sum payment if you suffer from a covered critical illness and the survival period is satisfied. The physical and emotional strain of a critical illness can be severe and when you combine that with the potentially damaging financial impact, the result can be devastating.
That’s where the critical illness benefit comes in—you are free to spend the money as you wish—such as to help cover lost income, to pay for private nursing or out-of-country treatment, for medical equipment or even to pay off your mortgage. It can help you where you need it most so you can focus all your energy on recovering.
A critical illness can happen to anyone:
It is estimated there are over 70,000 heart attacks in Canada each year.
There are between 40,000 and 50,000 strokes in Canada each year.
An estimated 3,075 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer every week.
Disability insurance can provide you with financial security by replacing a portion of your earnings when an accident or illness causes you to become disabled and unable to work or earn an income. Accidents and illnesses are a fact of life. They could happen to anyone at any time. Did you know that
1 in 3 people, on average, will be disabled for 90 days or longer at least once before age 65.
The average length of a disability that lasts over 90 days is 2.9 years.
Both personal and business disability insurance solutions are available that offer flexibility and features to help bridge the gap between income and expenses during a disability.
As a business owner, you want to protect both your independence and profitability. We offer several types of insurance for business owners to reimburse certain business expenses, fund a buy-sell agreement or help hire a replacement for a disabled employee.
Whether you’re a professional, business owner, executive or employee, your financial advisor can tailor a plan to help meet your needs.
Our disability needs calculator can help you identify the income you need to maintain your current standard of living if you can’t work because of a disability.
