Let’s talk about… term insurance
Term insurance from ivari is available on its own for temporary protection needs, or it can be layered with universal life or critical illness protection to create personalized coverage that spans a longer length of time. Typically available in 10-, 20- or 30-year terms, you pay a set premium for the term period you purchased.
Is term insurance right for you?
While anyone can purchase term insurance, it is a particularly good choice if you are young and in good general health because you can benefit from affordable rates and guarantee your future insurability.
As well, if your insurance needs are temporary, for example to cover the time you have a mortgage, term insurance from ivari can provide you with the coverage you need when you need it.
What if your needs change?
Term insurance from ivari gives you the flexibility to make sure you always have the protection you need. At the end of the term period, your policy will automatically renew.1 If your needs change, you can convert2 your term policy to a permanent plan. Your advisor can help you decide which option is right for you.

Affordable protection when you need it
Term insurance from ivari offers affordable protection for a specific period of time – usually 10, 20 or 30 years. With term insurance, you pay a set premium only for the term period you require the coverage.
It may be the right choice for you if you need insurance protection for a very limited amount of time to cover specific debt such as a short-term mortgage.
A Term 10 policy is also perfect for layering with permanent insurance, like universal life, when you want to increase your current life insurance protection but only for a short period of time.
A 20-year term policy from ivari may be a good option if you feel that after 20 years you will no longer need to protect your income because you will be retired, for example, or if you feel that your debts will be paid off by this time.
Term 30 with SelectOptions
If you have longer term debt, like a 25-year mortgage, or if you are looking for income protection that lasts throughout your retirement years, Term 30 with SelectOptions from ivari could be the right choice. Plus, this product automatically renews at year 30 giving you permanent coverage with level premiums payable to age 100 and protection for life.
A Term30 with SelectOptions from ivari lets you take advantage of these unique features available between the 15th and 20th coverage anniversary:
- Select30 – Allows you to stop paying premiums and reduce the amount of insurance coverage for the remainder of your 30-year term, after which the policy terminates.
- SelectLIFE – Provides paid-up lifetime final expense coverage with the ability to stop paying premiums, reduce the amount of your insurance coverage and extend their coverage for life.
- SelectVALUE – Lets you access the cash value of your policy in one of two ways:
- Surrender or decrease your coverage and access your policy’s cash value
- Convert to one of our eligible universal life policies and the cash value will be used as a tax-deferred bonus credit3
Term vs mortgage insurance
Your home may be the single largest investment you will ever have so, naturally, you will want to protect it. Your bank will offer you mortgage insurance but is that your best option?
Your house…your policy
You may be surprised to know that with mortgage insurance you do not actually own the policy, the bank hold the contract with the insurance provider. What that means is that the bank is beneficiary of the policy. Should something happen to you, the death benefit from your mortgage insurance policy would be paid to the mortgage holder…the bank. With a term policy, you own the policy and can decide who you would like to have as a beneficiary.
