Cost

  • Premiums are calculated based on the:
    • loan balance
    • coverage selected
    • insured loan percentage selected
    • number of insured, their age and sex
    • loan amount and amortization period
    • smoking habits
  • By taking out Loan Insurance, you agree to a higher interest rate on your loan. The interest rate on your loan therefore consists of 2 rates combined: the basic interest rate charged by your financial institution plus an additional interest rate for the insurance.

This makes it possible to calculate the instalment premium based on the loan balance owing. Generally, the premium decreases as the loan balance decreases, since it automatically reflects the principal payments made. As a result, you pay a fair premium for the real risk that your loan represents.

  • “Double coverage” advantage. You can get a discount on your life insurance if you enrol in life insurance plus disability insurance

Payments

  • Premium payments are included in the instalment payments and the premium is automatically adjusted based on the loan balance so it’s always proportional to the insured risk

Benefits

  • Non-taxable benefits that aren’t reduced by any amounts received from other private or public plans

Telephone assistance services

  • Free access to certain telephone assistance services offered under the Guide, Protect and Support Program :
    • Psychological Assistance
