As with other life insurance policies, L’Héritage* provides an amount for your beneficiaries in the event of your death. It’s coverage for them, more than for you: you want them to be financially secure once you’re gone. You also want them to have money to pay your funeral expenses and even take some time to deal with the loss. Life insurance lets you help the people you love, even after you’re gone.
The difference with a L’Héritage life insurance policy is that you pay for a shorter amount of time over your lifetime, but get the same amount.
Some insurance products have to be paid for the rest of your life, while others only have to be paid for a certain amount of time. Normally the choice depends on your income and lifestyle: do you want to pay more money for a shorter period of time or less money for a longer period of time?
We have a few different products that let you pay less your whole life, including our L’Acadienne insurance policy. If you want to pay more and be done with it in a few years, we have one policy: L’Héritage. When you meet with one of our advisors, they’ll go over all the details to help you make an informed decision. Your life = your choice!
People usually work more and earn more when they’re younger. L’Héritage permanent life insurance lets you pay while you’re in your top earning years. After that, you’ll have permanent life insurance to protect your family in the event of your death, without the payments! Everything will already be taken care of.
The payments for a L’Héritage policy are spread out over 20 years, but the coverage continues until death.
When the 20-year payment period is up, you can keep your coverage for free. But you can also cancel your policy and receive a payout instead. That amount is called the “cash surrender value.”
Two things affect the cash surrender value of your policy:
Our advisors will let you know in due time how much you could receive if you decide to buy back your insurance policy.
