Here's the Plan

When you're midway through life, juggling savings and debt, family and career, the present and the future, it helps to have a Financial Plan.  Just like looking at a road-map for your road-trip, it helps to have a written financial plan to project your potential investments and income, as well as detours and roadblocks that may occur as life unfolds.   Take a look at this presentation outlining the benefits of having a Financial Plan.  

#Here's the Plan

Is your Mortgage covered?

Would your mortgage be covered if you passed away?  Are you sure?  Would your family be forced to sell?  Are you getting good value?

If you buy insurance to cover your mortgage at the bank or credit union, rather than through an independent advisor licensed in Life Insurance, you may not have the coverage you want.  There are several problems with mortgage insurance:

- your mortgage may not be paid out if post-death underwriting says you didn't qualify (see just one true story)

- the benefits go down each year, even as premiums remain level

- you don't own the policy that you're paying for

- you don't choose the beneficiary

- mortgage insurance is not portable should you move your mortgage

The pictogram below shows the difference between insuring your mortgage with a bank/credit union vs. with a Life Insurance Advisor

How can I afford coverage for disability, illness, and life insurance?

Many Canadians are finding it a burden to get coverage in the event of disability or critical illness, as well as taking care of debts or loved ones in the event of death.  Manulife has designed a unique Combined insurance to protect you, no matter what happens.   If you are under the age of 50, you can combine all these benefits into one policy, and the pool will pay out depending on which risk occurs first and on the amount of coverage you select. 

This 3 minute video explains how you can get 3 important benefits for one simple premium, and then contact Elaine Kelly for your personalized quote and consultation.
