Frequently Asked Questions

Universal Life Insurance FAQ

Universal Life Insurance combines the lowest possible cost life insurance to cover estate planning and family income replacement needs with the power of tax-sheltering your investment growth. Universal life insurance, such as Tax Advantage Life, is one of the last significant mainstream tax shelters left to Canadians trying to maximize their savings for their fast-approaching retirement years.

What are the advantages of Tax Advantage Life?
Tax Advantage Life is a universal life insurance policy that features unmatched flexibility and solid guarantees. The flexibility lets you tailor your policy to meet your specific needs. And as your needs change, your policy can be revised to address these needs. The major strength of Tax Advantage Life is that it is a flexible permanent insurance policy that can accumulate value on a tax-deferred basis. This means that the value within your life insurance policy will grow faster than if you had to pay income tax each year on the interest as it is earned. Plus, you have access to the value within your policy by making a loan or by taking a partial withdrawal subject to surrender penalties during the first 10 years, and Market Value Adjustments on Fixed Interest options. Also, your beneficiaries will receive the death benefit tax free.

What guarantees are associated with my Tax Advantage Life Policy?
Your policy contains the following guarantees:
What interest options are associated with my Tax Advantage Life Policy?
With Tax Advantage Life, you have many options to choose from:

You can choose any combination of these options for your policy funds and you can switch between options.

Are there any guarantees associated with any of the interest options?
The interest payable on Guaranteed Interest Options is linked the yield of a comparable Government of Canada Bond, minus a charge. The bond and index options are designed to closely match the performance of the index or fund that they are based on.

How much flexibility do I have if I change my mind about my policy?
When you receive your policy, you have a "free look" period of 10 days from the day the policy is delivered to you. You may return it during the free look period for a full refund of the premium you paid. After the free look period, surrender penalties will apply. Premiums are flexible, although continuing to pay your premiums will help you maintain your policy's value. If you discontinue your premium payments, the policy may terminate. To avoid this situation, be sure to check your Annual Statement to make sure the value within your policy is sufficient to keep your policy in force.

Term Life Insurance FAQ

There are several different reasons for purchasing term life insurance. These reasons tend to suggest a period of time (term period) that would be most appropriate for you. To help with this, we have included a few examples where different time periods might apply. Please don't hesitate to ask our licensed online specialist if you need any further help.

10 Year
Let's say that you are a business owner, and you have a key employee that you wish to cover with life insurance. If you don't expect the employee to stay in the same position for more than 10 years, a 10-year term policy may be ideal.

20 Year
This is a very common choice among people seeking longer-term coverage because of the cost-effective nature of the premiums. For example, over 20-years the total premium on a 20-year policy generally costs much less than purchasing a 10-year policy and then keeping the same 10-year policy for an additional 10 years. If you have young children at home, a 20-year term policy could be the perfect choice for seeing them through their college years.

Are the premiums guaranteed?
Premiums are set and guaranteed when your policy is issued. Premiums will increase at each renewal as shown in the policy and are guaranteed never to increase during a renewal term.

Is there a money-back guarantee?
A policyholder may cancel coverage at any time during the first 10 days of the policy and receive a full refund of any premiums paid.

What do I do when my term period is finished?
When trying to decide which term period is right for you it is important to know your options. You can always apply for a new term insurance policy after your term is through. At the end of your policy, the insurance company will contact you to tell you that the policy is about to expire. At this point you have three options:

  • New Policy
    Depending on your age and health, you can apply for a brand new policy with either your existing company or a new company. The new policy will simply replace the former policy. You must be careful when doing this because new underwriting requirements must be met with a new policy. Be sure to keep your old policy in force until you know the outcome of your new application. If your health has deteriorated you might face extremely high premiums, or even worse you might be refused coverage.

  • Keep your existing policy
    If you know your health is bad, you can continue paying on the existing policy after it expires. It will automatically continue as an extension of your existing policy. The good part about continuing a policy is that you will not need to provide medical evidence of your insurability: renewal is automatic regardless of changes in your health of personal situation.  The downfall with this option is that the policy typically becomes annually renewable. This means that each year after the guaranteed term period has finished, the premiums will begin to increase substantially every year.

  • Convert to a Permanent Policy
    You can convert your policy to a Permanent Life Insurance policy and lock in your premiums at a higher level for the rest of your life.  You have the right to convert an individual term insurance policy or rider to a plan of permanent insurance without evidence of insurability. The conversion of a Term Life policy may take place at any time before the policy anniversary nearest your 71st birthday. Of course, the premiums will depend on the type and amount of coverage chosen but, regardless of health, you cannot be turned down for coverage under this conversion option.
