Critical Illness
Insurance For Them

Illness can happen to anyone at any time. More often than not, injuries and critical health conditions occur unpredictably and can completely alter a person’s life. Whole and term life insurance provides a payout in the event of one’s death. The difference with critical illness insurance is that it is a living lump sum benefit. It offers financial coverage to an insured who receives a covered diagnosis that impacts their ability to work.

Critical illness insurance is a necessity. Illnesses are stressful enough – don’t add financial hardship to the equation.

At Shelter Bay, our experienced insurance brokers want to help you protect yourself and the people you love. When you speak to one of our advisors, you will get quality advice and detailed information so that you can make the best decision for your situation.

In the event of a critical illness, your health should be your main priority. Focus on recovery without worrying about finances. Contact us today so we can work together and set up the protection you need.

Lost Income

If you or your spouse got sick and were unable to work, how would that affect your finances? Would you be down to one income, or no income at all? Do you have additional sources of earnings that could pay for your daily and long-term expenses? What if your critical illness required additional treatments not covered by your current health insurance?
While we all think a critical illness simply just couldn’t happen to us, but these conditions affect millions of Canadians each year. Whether it’s heart disease or skin cancer, having a critical illness insurance plan in place will ensure you have protection and flexibility if you can no longer financially support your family.
