Canada Life Insurance Pricing by Customer Traits
Even if you and your next-door neighbour buy life insurance from the same insurance company, you may not pay the same price. That’s because life insurance companies base your price largely on your age, policy coverage amount, policy duration, smoking status, and current health status. Some companies are more lenient about specific customer characteristics and provide better pricing than other companies for people with these characteristics.
Here’s a breakdown of how Canada Life insurance prices compare to prices offered by other companies for various customer characteristics.
|Low coverage need (<$500,000)||Excellent|
|Large coverage need (>$500,000)||Excellent|
