Pay now, save later

For some people, saving money isn’t a priority at the moment – that will come later once the mortgage is paid off and the kids have finished their post-secondary education. If this sounds like you, then a layered approach to insurance may be exactly what you need. ​






As your financial responsibilities decrease, your need for insurance protection will decrease, too. Your financial advisor can show you how applying a layered approach to your insurance coverage will allow you to shift some of the dollars you were previously allocating to insurance into long-term savings, when the time is right.


 How it works


How it works

Earlier on in your family’s life you will probably find that your need for insurance protection is greater than your need for retirement savings. Your focus, at the moment, is on paying off your mortgage and saving for your children’s post-secondary education. As your needs evolve, your financial advisor can show you how a layered insurance solution will evolve right along with you.

A layered solution

Your advisor can combine term insurance products from Transamerica to create a solution that will give you the right mix of protection and savings at a price you can afford. By combining Term10, Term20 and Term30 insurance, your insurance protection will mirror your needs throughout your life while allowing you to focus on your savings when the time is right.

Start big…end right where you need to be

If you choose to pay now and save later, your advisor will put together a layered insurance solution that provides you with the protection you need for 30 years. On top of that, you will have added a little more protection for the first 20 years and even more for the first 10 years, when your need for protection is the greatest. After 10 years, your mortgage may be paid off. After 20 years the kids will most likely be done with school and you will be left with the basic protection you need for the remainder of the 30-year term only.
