Know the true cost of good life insurance in Quebec

What is the definition of a GOOD life insurance policy in Quebec?

First, what is GOOD life insurance and how do you know if it’s right for you?

In fact, a good life insurance policy could be defined as a policy offering the owner and the beneficiary optimal protection of capital, assets, and liabilities in the event of the death of the owner.

Well, that sounds very technical as a definition, but basically what it means is that it’s life insurance that takes into account YOUR financial situation, your accumulated debts upon your death, as well as the assets that you want to protect.

For example, at your death, you will have funeral expenses that need to be paid for your burial, ceremony, etc.

Then, you may have assets with deferred tax payable. We can think, among other things, of a chalet that you wish to bequeath to your children, and which has increased in value over the years. In the event of your death, you will leave your heirs with tens of thousands of dollars in tax liabilities if you do not have enough insurance benefits to cover that amount.

Eventually, over the course of your life, you will incur debts such as a mortgage which you will need to protect with life insurance. For example, with mortgage life insurance, in the event of premature death, your insurer will remit a sufficient amount to your beneficiary so that he pays the balance of the mortgage with some cash left over, depending on the type of insurance.

To cover all these risks, there are two types of insurance, which we will present to you in detail.

Term life insurance vs. permanent life insurance: which is the most expensive?

If an insurance advisor took the time to develop your financial profile and your insurance needs, they would have to determine what your needs are for 2 types of policies.

First, do you need permanent life insurance? Permanent life insurance is the type of policy that stays in place for your entire life. This is usually used to cover funeral expenses, taxes at death, and other debts that you have at the time of death.

Then there is term life insurance. This type of policy remains in effect for a certain number of years, for example, 10 years, 15 years, 25 years, 30 years, etc. Term life insurance is used to cover a risk or a debt that will disappear after a certain time, for example a mortgage, a car loan, etc.

But which of these types of policies is the most expensive?

The answer: permanent life insurance!

In fact, permanent life insurance is more expensive than term life insurance in Quebec. Why?

Because with a permanent life insurance policy, the insurer is certain to pay the death benefit to the beneficiary regardless of when the insured dies.

With term life insurance, the policyholder may outlive the term of the policy, and the insurer will not have to pay a single penny to the beneficiary.

The cost of permanent life insurance is calculated based on a multitude of criteria, and cannot be calculated online. You must make an appointment with an advisor to get a quote.

However, you will find a comparison table below providing different price guidelines for various EXCELLENT life insurance products.
