Buying insurance for a child may not be comfortable, but it’s an important step for your financial plan, and your child’s future financial security.

Permanent life insurance for children

  • Helps protect your child’s future financial security. The insurance you buy for them now gives them a base for their own family’s financial wellbeing.
  • Creates a stable investment with tax-advantaged growth and cash value they can access for future expenses, like education.
  • Helps protect your family’s financial security. Should something happen, it makes funds available so parents can take a leave from work to help deal with the loss.

 

Critical illness insurance for children

  • Gives your child critical illness insurance protection into adulthood.
  • Helps cover day-to-day expenses so that a parent can stay by a sick child’s side during treatment and recovery.
  • Helps off-set the costs associated with an illness so you don’t have to dip into your savings or retirement fund.
