As parents ourselves, we know the importance of saving time and money

So, when we realized that 40% of a life insurance policy's rate was spent on distribution and underwriting costs, we decided it was time to work our magic, eliminate any wasted efforts and pass those savings back to you.

Do I even need life insurance?

You probably need life insurance if you have people who are relying on you financially, whether that's a partner, young children, elderly parents or anyone else. You should also consider life insurance if you have large debts like a mortgage or business loan.

Is term life insurance best for me?

It depends on your financial situation, but for most Canadian families, yes. And because of this, term is the only option we offer.

To read a comprehensive review of the best life insurance companies, click here.

Is my policy fully underwritten?

You bet it is. Health, occupation, and lifestyle questions are asked upfront, giving you greater certainty at claim time.

What's a death benefit?

It's your coverage amount, and it's paid out tax-free if your loved ones make a claim if you were to pass away.

Will my prices increase if my health declines?

Nope! During your policy term, your monthly price is locked in and will not increase. Want to cancel? You can do that at any time and without any fees.

What happens if I pass away while my policy is active?

If this happens, we’ll be here for your loved ones to help them through the claims process. We provide an experienced Claims Concierge as the single point of contact for your family – from making the insurance claim to getting the payout.

What exactly does PolicyMe do?

We protect Canadian families with life insurance. We’ve used technology to streamline the life insurance application process and help Canadian families get personalized advice. By doing so, we've cut out inefficiencies in the process and cut down costs. This makes our life insurance policies 5-10% lower on average than the market in cost.

How do I know PolicyMe will be around in 30 years?

We've partnered with Canadian Premier, a federally-regulated and wholly-owned subsidiary of Securarian Financial - one of North America's most reputable insurance companies.

In other words: rest easy. We’ll get you covered today, then give you long-term peace of mind knowing that your life insurance claims will get paid.

Are PolicyMe advisors commissioned?

No, and we think that's a good thing! Our life insurance advisors are non-commissioned, so you can rest assured that you are getting the best advice for you and your family.

How does PolicyMe make money?

For full transparency, we take a fixed percentage from each policy, just like any other life insurance company. This goes towards marketing, underwriting, and administration costs, while also allowing us to make some profit.

What makes us different is we've cut down on so many inefficiencies in the process that we can still pass on lots of savings to you!

How will you handle my family's claim if I pass away?

It’s our promise to you that if the worst happens, we’re here for your loved ones, every step of the way.

Your dedicated PolicyMe claims concierge works with your beneficiary to walk them through the required documentation and process. This can be done by Zoom or phone.

Your claim is then submitted to our partner, Canadian Premier, who reviews the case. We provide support if any follow-ups are required.

We notify your beneficiaries when the claim is approved. The claim is made as a tax-free, lump-sum payment paid by e-transfer or cheque.

What if I want to cancel my policy?

We’re a no-obligation kind of company. Cancel at any time without penalty. But we hope that doesn’t happen. We’d really miss you!
