Types of life insurance

There are a number of different life insurance products available to Canadians. They all have unique features and functions that distinguish them from each other. It's important to educate yourself with what products are available to you, in order to select the right policy type to meet your situation. Here are some of the most common types of life insurance in Canada:

Term life insurance covers you for a specific period of time, typically from 5 to 30 years. When you buy term life insurance, you lock in your premium and coverage for the entire term. When your term expires, you may have the option to renew your policy at a higher cost premium or let your coverage expire. Some policies also let you convert to whole life insurance or universal life insurance, typically between one and five years before the policy ends.

When you buy a term life insurance policy, you  start by choosing the term length and your coverage amount. If you die within the policy term, your life insurance company will pay out your selected coverage amount, also known as the death benefit, to your beneficiary.

The most common term life insurance policies are 20-year policies.
