Protect your family’s interests
When you take out this coverage, you can even be reimbursed for rehabilitation services or medical equipment needed for recovery. This coverage is also highly beneficial as a complement to the group insurance provided by your employer. Whether it’s for you, your spouse or your children, this type of coverage lets you protect your financial security—or theirs—in the event of a serious illness or disability.

Another layer of protection

To make sure you benefit from the most comprehensive coverage possible, it is strongly recommended that you take out disability and/or critical illness insurance. Over the course of your life, a number of situations can leave you struggling with major expenses:

  • Changing jobs
  • Changes to your group insurance coverage
  • Accidents

Add an extra buffer to your coverage

Taking out supplementary insurance to make up for gaps in your group insurance is a very wise strategy. This ensures that your assets and loans are covered, saving you from major debt if unfortunate circumstances arise. Let me make sure that the lifestyle you and your family enjoy is protected!
