What is Term Life Insurance

10-year term life insurance initially provides coverage for a defined period of time - the term. Unlike permanent life insurance which offers life insurance coverage for life, term life insurance is initially set at a guaranteed rate for a set period, such as 10 years. If the insured person passes away within this term, a death benefit is paid out to their beneficiaries.

The defining feature of a term life insurance plan is its simplicity and low cost. It assures a predetermined amount - known as the death benefit - that your chosen beneficiaries receive in the unfortunate event of your passing within the specified term. This clarity, combined with a streamlined and expedient application process (often no-medicals at all), makes term life insurance a highly attractive and accessible choice for many.

Offering simplicity in an often complicated world, term life insurance can be your beacon, guiding you towards a future filled with peace of mind and financial security.

A 10-year term life insurance plan brings a host of benefits making it an attractive option for those seeking reliable, short-term coverage.

Affordable Premiums: Among different types of life insurance, 10-year term life insurance is usually the most affordable. The insurance premiums for a 10-yearterm policy are lower than those for longer terms or permanent life insurance.

Fixed Premiums: For the entirety of the 10-year term, your premiums paid remain the same. Whether you choose to pay your premiums monthly or annually, you can budget easily knowing the amount you need to pay will not change. Note – after the initial ten years most policies do allow a renewal of coverage without any medical evidence, all be it at a new rate reflecting your new age.

Peace of Mind: Although nobody likes to think about the worst happening, knowing that your loved ones will be financially protected can provide substantial peace of mind. If you pass away within the term, your beneficiaries receive the death benefit, which is tax-free in Canada. Different policies have different specifics, so it's important to speak to your broker about what your policy includes.
