What is LoanProtector?

If you have spent the past couple of months planning to buy a new vehicle, or take a well-deserved holiday with the family, or invest in renovating your property.

Here at RBC Royal Bank, we offer the financial security of LoanProtector Life insurance to protect yourself and your family's standard of living, but also your net worth and assets.

  • Or a line of credit to pay for a few financial expenses.

  • Insurance may be the correct solution to keep your plans on track.

  • Will your payments fit into your financial plans.

  • If I suffer an accident or get sick, making you unable to work

  • Loan to protect your assets and financial plans.

  • Live stress-free knowing that you can continue to live your life the way you intend to.

Legal Disclaimers:

This insurance plan is a creditor's group insurance plan that The Canada Life Assurance Company underwrites. The insurance policy is subject to terms and conditions, limitations, benefits and exclusions, including eligibility restrictions.

Personalize Your Loan Protection

You can either choose a life insurance plan or add a critical illness or disability insurance for added protection.

Disability Insurance

You can maintain your regular loan payments and pay 3% of your line of credit balance if you become disabled temporarily or permanently. Coverage up to $3,000 for a maximum period of 24 months.

  • It helps maintain your personal insurance.

  • It protects your savings for when they need to be saved.

  • LoanProtector, Critical Illness and Disability insurance benefits are non-taxable, and they need not be required to be coordinated with other insurance policies.

The Qualifying Balance is explained as:

  • For life insurance policies: Whichever is lesser, the date of death of the insured's outstanding balance or the average monthly balance of the insured 12 months before their demise.

  • For critical illness insurance: Whichever is lesser, the date of death of the insured's outstanding balance or the average monthly balance of the insured 12 months in which the diagnosis happened.

  • For disability insurance: Whichever is lesser, the date of death of the insured's outstanding balance or the average monthly balance of the insured 12 months before the month in which the disability happened.

Why Might I Need to Apply for Loan Insurance?

  • If I have coverage through work, do I really need more insurance coverage?

  • Losing your work due to a disability or termination could result in you and your family being left without any coverage.

  • Ideally, employers only provide insurance coverage that amounts to 1 to 2 times your salary in the event of your passing, and if you are disabled due to an injury or illness, about two-thirds of your income will be provided.

Would you be able to manage your financial situation with a third less income and increased expenses?

  • If you become self-employed or leave your job, you could lose your coverage.

  • LoanProtector® Insurance will help take care of your outstanding debts while the coverage from your existing employee coverage will take care of your family financial needs.

Upon my death, couldn't my estate just sell my assets?

Yes, they can, but you must ask yourself. Are those assets more than enough to cover your outstanding debts and take care of your loved ones' immediate and long-term financial needs? Additionally, if your dear ones had to sell your assets all of a sudden in a down-market to pay off your debts? Don't worry! LoanProtector® Insurance can take care of your existing financial plans making sure they are intact.

Do I need to purchase an insurance policy for a small RSP loan?

Even though your registered savings plan or line of credit may be minimal, it is an added liability. For mere cents a day, LoanProtector® Insurance can help minimize or even, in certain instances, pay off debts that are in the event of your passing or if you have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. If you have been disabled due to an illness or injury, we can help take care of your payments.

Isn't term insurance a better value?

A term life insurance can indeed play a vital role financially in providing for your family's financial future. When you purchase LoanProtector® Insurance, you can rest assured; it is an affordable and convenient way to make sure your outstanding debts are looked after.
