The ins and outs of income replacement

Rounding it up

  • Income replacement refers to insurance policies designed to replace part or all of your income if you or your dependents couldn't count on it anymore.

  • The government offers benefits to financially support dependents who’ve lost an income contributor. They’re helpful, but often insufficient.

  • That’s where life insurance comes in. This policy offers a tax-free, lump sum payout to beneficiaries in the event of an untimely death.

  • Considering life insurance but don’t know where to begin? Start by seeking help from online insurers who offer custom quotes and income replacement advice for free.
