Life Insurance

We all want to live long, happy, and healthy lives; we cherish every birthday wish and milestones celebrated with loved ones. But experience has taught us that everything can change in an instant. The loss of a loved one is hardest on those they leave behind, and it’s often felt in different ways — there’s grief that some people never fully recover from, financial losses, and in some cases, even liabilities that fall upon the shoulders of those left behind. Life insurance protects families from the shock and long-term financial burden that the sudden death of a loved one causes. Apply now for guaranteed life insurance

The Basics of Life Insurance

Life insurance protects families from the impact of sudden loss in the form of a tax-free payment. The amount paid out to listed beneficiaries depends on your selected coverage, which is determined based on your age, health, medical history, and lifestyle.

What Does Life Insurance over?

Life insurance is an investment in the future of our loved ones; your commitment to your family is to take care of their needs. The funds from a life insurance policy have helped countless Canadians after the loss of a loved one. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the loss of a loved one and their current financial situation, beneficiaries can use the coverage amount from a life insurance policy to:
  • Pay for funeral expenses in the absence of a funeral insurance plan
  • Clear remaining debts and prevent the transfer of liability to surrounding family, as well as incurring debt for funeral and immediate day-to-day expenses
  • Cover everyday and long-term expenses to compensate for the sudden loss of breadwinner income.

How Much Life Insurance Do You Need?

A life insurance policy shouldn’t be another financial burden to worry about; it’s a minimal, but rewarding long-term investment in the future of your family. Coverage amounts — or the sum insured — may vary for each policyholder depending on their circumstances. If you are married with kids, your family will require more resources to afford basic needs and sustain their lifestyle, often including mortgage payments, education, and daily expenses. An insurance expert from Oegema Nicholson will walk you through the process of determining the right coverage for your situation and ensure maximum financial cover at the most affordable price.

Information About Pre-Existing Conditions

Reality is, many people begin to think about securing the future of their loved ones when they have a condition that may impact the quality of life, or worse, result in their untimely death. Oegema Nicholson is committed to providing the right life insurance coverage for every Canadian — even those with pre-existing medical conditions. Our goal is to equip you and your loved ones with a reliable and affordable life insurance policy.

Do you need life insurance?

Many people question whether they truly need the protection that life insurance offers. It’s common to think that if you have savings and assets stored away, your loved ones won’t need the amount paid out by a life insurance policy — and you, the added expense. Life insurance is an investment in the future of your family. Life insurance provides guaranteed protection and ensures that your loved ones won’t bear the burden of unpaid debt, coupled with the loss of income.

Term Life Insurance

Term life insurance is a savvy investment that’s simple and affordable to maintain. Its key advantage is a fixed amount of insurance coverage for a specific period. In the event of an untimely passing, term life insurance provides your beneficiaries with a tax-free benefit. Whether you simply want a base amount to cover immediate expenses or you want to upgrade to increased coverage at a later time, term life insurance provides customized protection for your changing needs.

Permanent Life Insurance

Permanent life insurance is a smart investment that grows along with your needs and lifestyle. An early investment provides a key advantage in long-term savings as premiums often remain the same. But that’s not all; your long-term permanent life insurance contributions only have to be paid for a certain period; after a while, coverage is guaranteed — essentially, it’s paid for life.

Participating Life Insurance

Get the life insurance you need — and be rewarded in the process. Participating life insurance provides policyholders with dividends while guaranteeing premiums for life. These dividends — or occasional rewards — allow you to increase your coverage, reduce annual premiums, or earn interest. These incentives can go a long way in ensuring the maintenance of a current life insurance plan.

Universal Life Insurance

For the utmost flexibility in terms of guaranteed protection and savings, universal life insurance is the right fit. This coverage provides a guaranteed death benefit for beneficiaries, ensuring reliable financial assistance for families. As well, payments made towards a universal life insurance policy that is above the cost of the insurance itself earn tax-preferred interest.

My broker Bill C. from ONA has helped me over the years now with my vehicle insurance. He is very cautious and detail oriented when processing documentation, and ensures I understand everything whenever there are any changes. He recently helped me cut my premium almost in half just by improving my record and shopping around at the appropriate time. I am grateful to him and the team for being there for me when I need them.

I was assisted recently by Greg, who did a wonderful job in not only answering all of my questions and helping me to review pre-existing insurance plans, as well as advising me to look into my credit card/group insurance before needlessly purchasing more. This to me speaks highly of the character of the employee and business of a whole, and it is certainly the one I will be going to for any future needs.
