Life Insurance

As we get older, it’s important to think about what matters to us – and what we’d like to protect well into the future.  
Life Insurance can be a great way for you to give loved ones or your supported causes financial support long after you’re gone.

Look after what you love – year after year after year

Our Life Insurance can also help you:

  • Leave money to your favorite charity, place of worship, school or other worthy cause
  • Contribute to your grandchildren’s education
  • Provide future financial assistance to a loved one
  • With expenses you might have if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness

Our Living Benefit is a very attractive benefit to seniors.

Please note

The MROO Life Insurance Plan makes a great complement to your Health & Dental Insurance and/or RecoverEaseSM Plan.

Enrollment is guaranteed (no medical questions) and coverage continues for life. 

MROO’s health, dental and life insurance products are underwritten by The Manufacturers Life Insurance Company

Plan benefits and eligibility

MROO’s Life Insurance Plan can help you once your employer-sponsored coverage ends or your circumstances change.

Its affordability and key features make it a real asset to your overall retirement plans:

  • Individual or Joint and Survivor coverage is available to you and your spouse, provided you are between the ages of 50 and 80 at time of enrollment and are a resident of Canada
  • Once enrolled, your premiums will not go up 
  • Provided premiums are paid, only you can cancel your coverage
  • At age 90, no further premiums are required; however, your coverage continues for life
  • Reduced premium rates are available for couples

Joint and Survivor coverage – 5% premium savings 

Choose Joint and Survivor coverage for you and your spouse and you will enjoy a special premium rate that is 5% less than the rate for individual coverage.

You must each choose the same amount of coverage, available in units of $2,500 (a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 8 units).

Under Joint and Survivor coverage, when the first death occurs, the beneficiary will receive the face amount of your policy. The surviving spouse can keep their coverage.

The premium for the surviving spouse will be reduced to his or her individual premium rate at the date of enrollment, less 5%.

Living Benefit – cash benefit for the terminally ill 

After two years of continuous coverage under the plan, you may be eligible for Living Benefit coverage.

If you’re diagnosed as terminally ill with 12 months or less to live, you may apply for a cash advance of a portion of your death benefit (up to 50%) to use however you wish.  
This benefit is available as long as premiums continue to be paid and coverage remains in force. The balance of the benefit will be paid to the beneficiary upon the death of the insured.

Accidental death – up to 5 times the benefit amount (up to $100,000)* 

If accidental death occurs before age 85, your beneficiary may qualify for a benefit of five times the face amount of your policy.

If accidental death occurs at age 85 or later, your beneficiary will receive the face amount of your policy.

*Note: Limitations, exclusions and restrictions may apply.

When the death benefit is not paid in full 

If your death is due to a pre-existing condition, the death benefit will be equal to the premiums you have paid, plus 10% interest compounded annually.

If your death is due to suicide, the death benefit will be equal to the premiums you have paid, without interest. If non-accidental death occurs after the first two policy years, the face amount of your policy is paid less any Living Benefit paid.

Premium savings – up to 40% as a non-smoker

Your premium is based on gender, age and smoking status at the time of enrollment.

If you have not smoked cigarettes in the 12 months immediately prior to the date of enrollment, you will enjoy the non-smoker premium rate.

Guaranteed acceptance

Acceptance is guaranteed for you and/or your spouse, provided you are between the ages of 50 and 80 and insured under a provincial health insurance plan.

Review your policy right away

Once you receive your policy you will have 30 days to review it.

If you’re not completely satisfied, simply return it within that time for a full refund of premiums paid.

Affordable monthly premiums

  • Minimum purchase 2 units ($5,000)
  • Maximum purchase 8 units ($20,000)
