Don't care, won't pay.

...Before signing up they will promise you they world, but when time comes to pay they won't part with your money. You will have to wait forever, and they don't want to hear from you at all. If your agent is not going to help you, Canada Life won't either. Once they have your money, nobody cares, you are on your own...

Did you know that mortgage insurance is the same as life insurance but more expensive and offers less protection? By cancelling it and getting life insurance , you would typically save around 30%-40% for the same coverage.
 

God helps you!

...If you take on a Canada Life policy, you'd make sure you have a good insurance agent, if not Canada Life is not going to help you at all. I have come to realize that my agent is not better than an used car salesperson, promised me the world before taking my money, ensuring me if I cancel within 30 days she would personally refund me the money if Canada Life does not. When I got pressured into signing up for the products with Canada Life, the agent back dated the cheques (totally over $4500), for reason unknown to me, and cheques cashed immediately. When I contacted the agent to cancel the policies the agent delayed on submitting the cancellation request number of times till I demanded confirmation of the cancellation of all policies I took on. I sat quietly for over a month, there was no sign of any refund, I then contacted the agent for the first time inquiring about the refunds. The agent told me she would check with Canada Life, I never heard from after. I texted twice, called and left message once, she ignored me. One morning I found her on the phone unexpectedly, she then told me she had traced the refund, not to worry and it might take a few months but I would 'eventually' get it. The casual careless attitude of the agent upset me. The same day she forwarded me a stream of emails asking her whether I have received my cheques without the agent’s reply. I waited few more days with no feedback after asking to confirm the address where the refund cheques would have been sent to. I then decided to write Canada Life New directly. All I got back was the email from the New Business Associate of the Individual Insurance New Business department telling the financial institute to which my agent belongs to to advise her not to allow the client to contact Canada Life directly. It seems that Canada Life does not care what the agents and financial institutions out there representing them doing to their clients and policy holders. When something goes wrong clients of Canada Life would have nowhere to turn to. They don't care, don't want to be contacted. When they take your money, they want it 2 days ago, when they have to pay or return your money, they don't want to hear from you. If you have anything to do Canada Life, God Helps You!!!

Did you know there is a 35% chance of developing a critical illness before you are 65 and 65%-70% chance before you turn 81? That means getting a critical illness insurance quote is no less important than getting life insurance. Your choice.

...I've held 3 policies over the 12 years I've been with my bank and since I experienced nerve pain and been place off work and waiting for a lengthy drawn out night mare of a discussion I've been told I'm to high risk they are shredding my contract and sending all my premiums back to me. these guys are crooks. I called my branch manager expressed the disgusting product that they are endorsing and that is a bad reflection on their business. We'll see where this goes but this bank has been warned I will pull pin on them after 12 years and working where i work and the elbows i rub this experience will cost both business dearly as because everyone will hear the "peace of mind" that are all lies sold to un-expecting clients...

Canada Life will not pay

...I purchased life and disability insurance through RBC home protector and their provider is Canada Life. Last November I had a back injury and I have been of work for almost 7 months now. I applied for the disability insurance I was paying for and thought I had. Once I sent all my medical info regarding my injury to Canada Life, they wanted more info from my family doctor going back 2years from date I purchased the insurance. They found a medication prescribed to me in that 2year period . The medication was for something other than anything they indicated on the application form questions I answered when I applied for the insurance. They declined me coverage for my back injury and cancelled my coverage for disability. I appealed there decision with a letter from my doctor explaining the medication treatment and they still declined me a second time. I took it to a lawyer last week. He said Canada Life is treating me unfairly and that I stand a great chance of settling this in my favor. Problem is he said I could end up paying him more than the coverage I would get back from Canada Life. At least he was honest. More than I can say for this insurance company...

Planning to get life insurance to protect your family, including children? Make sure that you get enough coverage. According to studies, it takes about $250,000 in total to raise a child to the age of 18 (and that doesn’t include any post-secondary education costs).
 

Canada Life does not pay

...Scotia bank sold coverage to us on our mortgage and Credit lines. When my spouse passed away and I submitted my claim Canada Life decided they were only going to pay a portion of the claim. They "averaged" our line 12 months prior to my spouses diagnosis and that's all they would pay. When we spoke to our bank rep who sold this insurance to us they had no idea of this averaging by Canada Life. If the reps at the bank are not updated on the rules and they are the ones pushing this product down their customers throats is the bank not liable for our lose?Canada Life will not return phone calls and have left me with a large loan to pay. I will be forced to hire a lawyer to hopefully get my claim paid. DO NOT ever let the bank talk you into mortgage insurance--go get term from a LICENSED insurance Broker...

Did you know that one in three Canadians, on average, will be disabled for more than three months before they turn 65? Get a disability insurance quote today to make sure your income is secure, even when you are temporary disabled.
