Underinsured Executives - Protecting the Leadership Team.

Those at the highest earning levels are often left underinsured on traditional group LTD benefit plans given overall plan maximums determined by the carriers. Individual policies can be used to complement group LTD coverage, providing plan design options simply not available on traditional plans. Coverage is portable allowing Executives to take coverage with them. In the event of a severance situation, such policies provide valuable protection to Employers.

Critical Illness Insurance Helps Make Recovery More Comfortable.

Critical Illness (CI) insurance ensures that an employee can focus on their recovery and not worry about the financial implications or obligations that often accompany illness or injury.

It may allow the employee to seek treatment outside of Canada, fly in family members to assist with care, provide income replacement for a spouse taking an unpaid leave of absence to act as caregiver, or hire a nanny or eldercare. Gaining access to these services and support helps to make recovery more comfortable and removes unnecessary burden at an already difficult time.

Group Coverage for Critical Illness Provides Great Benefits.

Offering Critical Illness Insurance to your staff on a group basis provides:

  • Ease of application as no medical evidence is required.
  • Significant premium savings to your employees when compared to purchasing this coverage personally.
  • No termination age as coverage may continue until an employee ceases to be eligible depending on the plan contract provisions.

Whether offered on a mandatory or voluntary basis, CI serves as a complement to your existing employee benefits package. Critical Illness Insurance is not tied to income and will not affect a life or disability insurance payout.
