With this type of insurance, there are three possible intervening parties:
- The policyholder, the insured party and the beneficiary.
- The policyholder is the person who signs the policy and pays the premium.
- The insured person is the person whose disability or death determines the payment of the insured capital and the beneficiary is the person who would receive any indemnity.
- Temporary life insurance: a periodic premium is paid for a guaranteed capital in the event of death or disability. The policy is renewed annually and the premium increases each year based on the insured party’s age.
- Payment protection (or fixed premium) life insurance: a constant premium is paid for a defined term. This type of insurance is mostly used for cases where you wish to guarantee the payment of a mortgage.
- If you are head of household and have children who depend on you and wish to guarantee your family’s future
- If you exercise a risky profession, you frequently drive or do any risky sports
- If your home is mortgaged, your mortgage payments will be covered in the event of an accident.
- Young people take out this type of insurance to protect themselves from a disability that could affect their career.
