Is Your Financial Stability at Risk?

Is Your Financial Stability at Risk?
Critical illness can be defined as a life-altering illness. Critical illness insurance helps lessen the financial consequences of a serious disease. It pays a tax-free, lump-sum payment after a diagnosis.

While most Canadians do not plan on becoming critically ill, the fact is: 

  • 2 in 5 Canadians will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime 
  • 1 in 12 Canadians are living with heart disease 
  • Over 700,000 Canadian adults live with the effects of a stroke
Critical illness is more common than many of us would like to believe, and critical illness insurance can help lessen the financial consequences of a serious disease. Common types of critical illness include: 

  • Heart disease 
  • Cancer 
  • Stroke 
  • Blindness 
  • Major organ transplant 
  • Multiple sclerosis 
  • Paralysis 
  • Parkinson’s disease
Relying on provincial health plans or employer-sponsored disability insurance is not enough. These plans often have time limits, a waiting period and may not cover all expenses or have caps for costs associated with an illness or disease.

Canadians need a way to replace their income, pay for living expenses and cover all other financial commitments. If anyone depends on your income, critical illness insurance is important.
