Not sure of exactly how much life insurance you need in British Columbia? No worries!

Finding the sweet spot for how much life insurance you need in British Columbia is no enviable task. You don’t want to choose so little as to not cover any outstanding debts as well as the cost of living in B.C. for those you leave behind.

At the same time, choosing an amount that’s too large may prove costly in the future. What if you realize you may not have needed that much insurance coverage and could have saved some money?

A rule of thumb is to choose 8-10 times your annual income as your death benefit. For a more precise answer, take into account the debts you have, your family’s living expenses, future education needs of your children, your plans for end-of-life expenses, and any other allocations (e.g. charitable donations) you may want to make.

Our life insurance needs calculator takes your financial situation and allocation preferences into account and helps you determine the right amount of life insurance coverage in British Columbia.

Many people in British Columbia live with medical conditions and health issues they assume will prevent them from getting insurance coverage. Others need insurance coverage quicker than traditional medical underwriting can take. Fortunately, British Columbians can get an insurance policy without a medical examination or bloodwork.

Given the recent global pandemic and a greater focus on physical distancing, many are uncomfortable with the thought of going to a doctor’s office for medical tests or inviting a stranger into their home for a medical exam.

PolicyAdvisor offers several ways for those in British Columbia to apply for life insurance without a face-to-face meeting. Besides an aversion for blood tests or prior health concerns, there are several  reasons someone might elect for non-medical life insurance in British Columbia. In these cases, a simplified or guaranteed issue insurance policy provides more options.

You can shop for quotes, speak to a licensed British Columbia online insurance broker, and apply for life insurance all without leaving your own home or having a face-to-face meeting.
