Life insurance is a fundamental pillar for financial security, especially in the later stages of life or retirement. Among various life insurance plans, one lesser-known but highly useful type is guaranteed life insurance.

In this blog post, we answer what it is, we’ll explore its significance, the benefits it brings, and how it operates, outlined in an easy-to-understand guide.

What is Guaranteed Life Insurance?

Guaranteed life insurance is a type of life insurance where your acceptance is guaranteed regardless of your health or medical history. As long as you meet basic requirements such as age and residency, you will not be denied. Specialty Life’s guaranteed life insurance plan is available to permanent Canadian residents ages 18-80.

As with any life insurance plan, the policy holder pays a pre-determined premiums to the insurance company, while the insurance company will payout a tax-free benefit to the beneficiaries when the policy holder passes away.

Typically, like with Specialty Life, guaranteed life insurance lasts for your whole life. This means that whenever the policy holder dies, their family will receive the payout (as long as the premiums are paid).

Why Guaranteed Life Insurance Matters

While life insurance can be a difficult topic to face, acknowledging that your passing can be a financial burden on your family—in addition to the emotional distress—shows its importance. Thinking ahead and arranging life insurance can provide peace of mind, knowing that you're protecting your loved ones from financial strain during an already challenging time.

Your family can use the benefit for a variety of needs such as:

  • Covering funeral expenses and final costs
  • Clearing debts and estate taxes
  • Supplementing income
