When you begin shopping for term life insurance, it is important to define what your criteria for a policy is, and how important each of these factors are. For many Canadians the most immediate thing that pops into their mind as being the most important is getting the lowest term life insurance rate. Other aspects that can influence your decision is the insurance company, the specific benefits of a particular policy, or a preexisting relationship with a financial company that also offers insurance. These can all be important factors, but ultimately the most important decision should be if the policy fulfills its intended purpose. Life insurance is designed to provide financial protection in the event of the unimaginable.
Often times, people are not fully aware of the other benefits that a comprehensive term life insurance policy can offer you. The most obvious is that in the event of your death, your family would not suffer financial hardship with the loss of your income and support. Other financial components include covering the cost of a mortgage, or personal debt, as well as the cost of your final arrangements. Most term life policies also offer the option of converting to a whole life policy, which can be a great way to provide a savings component that can be used for covering the cost of retirement.
