SSQ’s Credit Insurance Plan is a well-rounded plan designed to help you manage and protect your debt. This plan combines the benefits of critical, life, and disability insurance all together.
A lifelong plan, SSQ’s Universal Life plan is for those who are looking to build their savings with investment accounts that are tax-sheltered. The Universal Life Plan includes disability protection, flexible premium payments and permanent life coverage.
With the SSQ Permanent Life Policy, a policyholder is protected for life. Special features of this policy include a cash value that’s available after just 10 years, and the ability to pay for the entire policy in just 20 years (or as long until the age of 100).
The SSQ Critical Illness Plan allows the insured to choose between three levels of coverage: Basic, Enhanced or Child. The Basic plan offers coverage against stroke, heart attack and cancer, while the Enhanced offers a more comprehensive level of coverage for up to 25 illnesses. The Child Protection policy adds coverage for autism, muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis.
SSQ’s short-term protection coverage option is the Term Life plan. In this plan, options for term lengths are several: one can choose between a term of 10 or 20 years, but also has the option to receive coverage up until the age of 75. Preferred rates are available to those with superior health at the time of application or renewal.
