Decreases:

Life Insurance

    • Term Life Insurance 20-year fixed term, bands of $100,000 and more and non-smokers
    • Term Life Insurance 25 and 30 years, bands of $100,000 and $250,000 for non-smokers under age 40.

New for the Disability Income Benefit, now included at no extra cost, coverage in the event of involuntary loss of employment for the insured policyholder (reimbursement of the contract’s total premiums):

    • Payable for 5 months, 90-day elimination period and retroactive to 30 days, maximum of $200 per month

The 100% Pure Protection Life Insurance is now a permanent product payable for life, and the insured capital will now be paid upon the insured’s death, rather than endow at age 100.

From now on, inputting coverage when there is more than one insured will be easier.

Rate Changes to a range of La Capitale Products

Because of the historically low level at which interest rates have persisted and the volatility in financial markets, La Capitale has increased some of its Individual Insurance product rates. The Company had no alternative but to make these adjustments to ensure the sustainability of its products and their features over the long term. The rate changes will enable us to maintain the quality of our products and continue to provide our clients with the financial security they desire.

    • Extended version and Children’s Critical Illness, Extended Second Chance and Second Chance for Children
