Insurance Planning FAQ

Insurance planning protects yourself, your loved ones, and your assets from undesirable situations, such as accidents. It is an essential part of achieving an effective financial plan. Insurance can alleviate financial problems due to unexpected events, keeping your home and family safe.

Canada has a universal, government-funded health insurance system. It is funded and administered throughout the country’s provinces and territories. This health insurance covers medically necessary services based on need rather than the ability to pay.

Insurance plans are highly beneficial for people searching for ways to protect their loved ones and assets from financial problems after certain unexpected events. Insurance coverage is intended to assist people in covering the financial burden of an unexpected death or illness.
Being prepared for unforeseen events affecting your financial situation is essential. Insurance helps you be financially ready to achieve your goals even if a crisis or a tragedy occurs in your lifetime. An insurance policy can prevent you from draining your emergency funds due to particular circumstances.

Risk analysis helps you understand and prepare for potential problems affecting your financial situation. Unforeseen events are inevitable, and insurance planning enables you to deal with these unwanted events.

Mainly, there are seven types of insurance: life insurance, disability insurance, health insurance, critical illness insurance, travel insurance, home or property insurance, and automobile insurance.

The five essential components are:

  1. Premium. It is what you will pay to ensure the continuity of your insurance policy.
  2. Deductible. The amount you pay lets the insurance kick in when filing a claim.
  3. Policy Limits. The maximum financial assistance you can receive for each event.
  4. Exclusions. These are certain events or conditions that are not covered by your insurance.
  5. “Riders” (additional coverage). They are optional add-ons to increase the coverage of your insurance.

The gross insurance market in Canada reached US$55.30 billion in 2020, and it is expected to grow 5% more in 2021-2025. Most people purchase insurance for their properties, followed by vehicles.

Follow these steps to plan for your life insurance:

  1. Determine the life insurance coverage you need.
  2. Establish goals regarding money matters for your life insurance.
  3. Identify the type of life insurance that is best for your needs.
  4. Check your situation and whether you need to include any “riders” in the policy.
  5. Consider the payment terms.
  6. Let your beneficiaries know regarding your life insurance policy.
