While life insurance protects your loved ones after you pass away, living benefits insurance protects you and your dependents in the event that you suffer a change of health that impacts your ability to provide for your family.
Living benefits insurance typically covers three types of insurance protection: disability, critical illness, and long-term care.
Disability insurance works by providing financial protection within a percentage of your monthly income, to a maximum of 66.66%. If you become disabled, you will continue to receive a monthly income to support ongoing costs, helping you maintain your standard of living. Disability insurance is a product in which rates are impacted by a number of factors, including occupation, lifestyle, etc. The lower your risk is, the lower your rates will be.
Critical illness insurance
Critical illness insurance pays out a one-time lump sum payment in the event of a specified medical event. Unlike the regular monthly payments under disability insurance, critical illness insurance is designed to provide financial support to help you overcome very specific medical circumstances.
Long-term care insurance
Like disability insurance, long-term care insurance also provides a regular monthly income to support you, if you require assistance with daily tasks, such as meals, bathing and managing medications. Long-term care insurance can be individual or joint coverage, with a spouse. In the event that you require transfer to a long-term care facility, the monthly payouts under long-term care insurance are doubled.
