Types of Insurance Offered
Life insurance is a cost-effective planning solution that pays a guaranteed sum of money (tax-free!) to a named beneficiary, at a time when the money is needed the most. There are all kinds of solutions that our team can help you work through, wherever you are in life. Here are a few of the most common types…
Solutions For Young Families
These solutions can provide tax-free money in the event of the death of one or both spouses. The money can pay off a mortgage, eliminate debts, and create an immediate education fund to ensure that your children will still have access to everything they need.
Solutions for Retirees and Seniors
There are some great benefits to these solutions. Immediate tax-free money can be provided to offset a reduction in pension income, to pay capital gains and income tax, to create a legacy for children and grandchildren, and to create a significant tax-deductible charitable donation.
Solutions for the Business Owner
Tax free money can be provided to fund a business buyout on the death of a partner or shareholder, or tax free money to replace the loss of a key employee.

Disability insurance is a cost-effective planning solution that protects individuals on a 24/7 basis. The goal of disability insurance is to ensure there is money for either income or office overhead expenses during an unexpected period of prolonged disability as a result of serious illness or accident.
You may think you don’t need disability insurance, but make sure you think about these questions before you make that decision…
- Are you willing to take the risk of going without any employment income?
- If you are self-employed, how can you protect your office overhead expenses if you suffer a long-term disability?
- Is the coverage that your employer provides enough for your needs or do you want to top it up?

Did you know that one in three Canadians is diagnosed with a critical illness before the age of 75? Did you know that if you are 45 years old and had to withdraw $50,000 from your retirement savings that you could lose $200,000-$300,000 of potential earnings?

Dealing with a serious illness is definitely stressful enough – don’t add financial stress on top of that.

Think of long-term care insurance as a wealth preservation planning solution that is used in the event you become functionally dependent. What this means is that you lose the ability to perform two or more of the six activities of daily living: bathing, eating, dressing, using the toilet, transferring, and maintaining continence.
APEX offers LivingCare Long Term Care Insurance from Manulife Financial, which pays a monthly benefit to you while you are living. This benefit does not depend on the actual cost of care, and no reporting of expenses is required – it’s all pre-determined at the time of application. Let the APEX team show you how this type of insurance can work for you.
