How is this different from my health or life insurance policy?
Income protection or disability insurance ensures you have an ongoing monthly income to support the financial needs of you and your family when you suffer an illness or injury that effects your ability to earn your income.
Why do I need this?
Every North American is reliant on an income to provide themselves necessities like shelter, food, heat, hydro, clothing etc. Losing your ability to earn an income due to an illness or injury leaves you vulnerable without the appropriate protection. 1 in 3 Canadians lose there ability to work everyday.
