Critical Illness Insurance
Guaranteed income when you're unable to work.
- Provides a lump-sum payment should you become seriously ill
- Enables a higher quality of life and helps protect your assets while you recover
No one knows what lies ahead with respect to our health. Cancer, heart attack, stroke – the list of potentially debilitating illnesses is long. While medical costs are covered through our provincial health system, there are often many other expenses associated with recovery that aren't.
Critical illness insurance† helps fills these financial gaps. If you are diagnosed with a qualifying illness, the amount of your policy is typically paid in a lump sum. This payout is yours to spend as you wish: to pay for private nursing, specialty treatments, or simply leave to your heirs. And it's tax free.
A tax-free financial cushion while you recover.
Living with a critical illness can mean major changes to your lifestyle and if you aren't prepared, serious financial challenges. Having a financial cushion at such an uncertain and stressful time not only enables you to enjoy a higher quality of life, but also lets you live more independently. Critical illness insurance gives you choices you might not otherwise have by providing:
- Cash up-front paid in a lump sum, tax free
- Financial freedom and flexibility
- The ability to plan for the unexpected
- Money when you need it most
The right advice makes all the difference.
Protecting you and your family in the event of misfortune is critical. The best approach is to discuss your needs with a BlueShore Wealth insurance advisor (a subsidiary of BlueShore Financial). They'll source the best policy at the most competitive price from leading Canadian insurance companies.
