Term life insurance

Protect loved ones' financial future

Regardless of your age, chances are there are people in your life who count on you or who would be left financially worse off if you weren't there to provide for them. They might be a partner, children, or even your parents. CDHA Term life insurance for dental hygienists lets you keep looking after them.

Term life insurance can help…

  • Pay a mortgage, taxes, funeral costs or other bills
  • Maintain your family's lifestyle without your income
  • Look after children, a partner, parents or any others you would like to provide for

It's especially important if:

  • You are a single parent who provides sole support, or a majority of the support, for your children
  • Your loved ones would have a difficult time managing financially without you

  • We will not issue payment for a death that occurs within two years of the policy start date, if the cause of death is self-inflicted injury or suicide. That applies regardless of whether the insured person has a mental illness or intends or understands the consequences of their actions. If you add more insurance, the two-year period for that amount runs from the additional coverage’s start date.
