Why Life Insurance is the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

Posted May 4th, 2022 in Did You Know?, General, In the News, Insurance Tips, Life Insurance, Media

Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to show your mother how much you love and appreciate her by giving her the gift of life insurance.  

Why Life Insurance is the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

Choosing to get life insurance has many benefits for the individual being insured and those around them, making it a perfect Mother’s Day gift!

Your mother will gain a sense of security once insured, and may even be able to receive tax benefits. Not only will it protect her, but it will also protect her spouse and children, which allows for some peace of mind. Life insurance is typically known to go towards a mortgage, funeral expenses, debts, or outstanding expenses. However, it can also be used to look after a child or grandchild’s ongoing education, or even be used for donations to different charities.

There are numerous benefits to life insurance, so continue to read below for more information about the different life insurance policies available and what affects a life insurance premium. 

Types of Life Insurance

Term Life Insurance

Term life insurance provides guaranteed rates and coverage, with prices renewing depending on the term selected, most commonly every 10 or 20 years (known as Term 10 or Term 20).

This is a cost-effective coverage type and is often used to protect mortgages. The plan you select should be renewable and convertible so that in the future you have the option to change your coverage to a permanent Whole Life or Universal Life plan as your needs change.

Whole Life Insurance

Whole life insurance provides permanent protection with guaranteed level premiums and death benefits. This type of coverage can gain cash values the longer the policy is in force.

This coverage is excellent for those who know they would like lifetime protection and are willing to spend more than for Term Insurance.

Universal Life Insurance

Universal life insurance provides permanent protection, along with the option to invest in a tax-sheltered environment by over-funding the policy.

This coverage is well suited for those who are concerned about estate preservation and estate planning.

Speak with Your Ontario Insurance Broker 

It will be important to reach out to your Insurance Broker to have them advise you on the process of buying life insurance for your mother as a gift. To purchase life insurance for your mother, you will need to gain consent from your mother to purchase the insurance for her. You will also need to provide proof of insurable interest. Proof of insurable interest verifies the relationship between the individual taking out the life insurance policy and the person who will be insured. Your Insurance Broker will be able to walk you through the process and will also advise you on what kind of life insurance policy and the amount of coverage that would be the best fit for your mother's life insurance needs.
