Gift of a lifetime: Permanent life and critical illness coverage
Parents dare not imagine for a single moment the possibility of one of their children receiving the diagnosis of a critical illness. Yet, for instance, childhood cancer remains the most common disease-related cause of death. At Richardson GMP, we help our clients look for solutions offsetting the financial burden related to unfortunate and unpredictable health or accident events.
Permanent life coverage
If you have the financial means to do so, insuring your children or grandchildren is a thoughtful present to give them. In fact, the best time to purchase life or critical insurance is when they are young and in fine health.
By using a permanent life insurance coverage for your children or grandchildren, you guarantee their future insurability. Should they develop health issues, they would be covered for life.
Insuring your children or grandchildren at an early age also makes for a smart financial strategy. When they reach maturity, you will be able to transfer to them the life insurance contract and the amount of money saved within the policy with minimal or no tax impact. Your children will then have the options of keeping it and being covered for life or using the accumulated funds for any personal purposes such as a deposit on a first house.
Critical illness coverage
If your children or grandchildren were diagnosed with a serious illness such as cancer or a rare heart disease, you would need time off from work. You would like to help them fulfill a wish or a dream as soon as possible. By purchasing a critical illness insurance, the insurer will pay a lump sum tax-free, providing the necessary funds to allow you to take care of them.
