Should You Buy Insurance For Children?

People are confused about life insurance and about the insurance industry in general. There are too many products, and the products are complicated. As a result fewer Canadians are buying life insurance in spite of the fact that there is a definite need. Those in the insurance industry recognize the problem and see the need for change.

“The insurance industry must try and simplify products in order to make them easier to understand, and less intimidating”, said Louise Mitchell, senior vice president, life and health, TD Insurance. “As an industry, we’ve created complicated products,” she said. “We need to have simple products.”

Insurance for Children is not your traditional company with a dizzying array of complicated insurance products. We have 2 core products – Child Plan for Parents and Child Plan for Grandparents. Insurance For Children is entirely devoted to empowering parents and grandparents to create a solid financial foundation for their children and grandchildren. Our focus is on insuring life. Child Plan for Parents can be used to pay for any education program worldwide; not only those approved by the government. If your child doesn’t pursue post secondary education Child Plan can be used to buy a house, start a business, or as a source of income. Child Plan for Grandparents is a flexible, tax free gift for your grandchildren. It can be used for education, to help with the down payment on a home, as a financial asset to start their own business, or even as a future source of retirement income.
