Canadian Wealth Secrets

Apr 24 2024 • 53 mins

Imagine you were able to pay each month for a lottery ticket that would pay out a large sum of money to support you financially in the event that you became critically ill over the next 15, 25, or even 50 years and if you are lucky enough to never need that large sum of money, you get all of your money back?

While there are many rabbit holes to dive down when it comes to financial tools including savings, investments, and insurance, there is one insurance tool that provides a pretty amazing living benefit should you become critically ill and if not, gives you all of your money back.

Whether you're grappling with the dilemma of where to allocate your hard-earned money to maximize investment returns or fretting over the possibility of a critical illness wreaking havoc on your family and finances, this podcast episode serves as an opportunity to share one of the most under-utilized insurance tools available to Canadians and incorporated business owners that leaves nothing but upside for you - including some income tax savings opportunities.

What you’ll learn:

  • What is critical illness insurance and why do we consider it like a free lottery ticket?
  • How does critical illness insurance work and how can it benefit Canadians personally as well as corporately?
  • When does it make sense for a Canadian to add critical illness insurance to their wealth building plan or corporate income tax minimization strategy?
  • Why split dollar or “shared ownership” of a critical illness insurance policy between a corporation and its shareholders can benefit you from a taxation perspective.
