It's always a good idea to protect yourself and your family
Insure your account
Have protection when unexpected things happen
If you're suddenly not able to make your payments because of unexpected things (like job loss), creditor insurance will protect you and your family.
This could be the right option for you if:
You have an outstanding balance on your personal line of credit or personal loan
You’re a Canadian resident between age 18 and under 65
The combined total of your approved personal line of credit and personal loan does not exceed $100,000
You’re actively employed at least 25 hours/week (for Job Loss you have to be continuously employed for 6 months immediately prior to your application)
If this is a good option for you and your family, call us at 1-888-723-8881.
If you are eligible to apply, you will be automatically approved for the insurance coverage with no medical examination required at the time of application.
Both you and your co-borrower may apply.
There is a 30-day review period: if you cancel the coverage within 30 days of receiving your Certificate of Insurance, any premiums that you have paid will be refunded and the insurance deemed never to have been in force
You can take advantage of a convenient premium payment:
Personal lines of credit: insurance premium is debited from your borrowing account.
Personal loans: insurance premium can be added to your regular scheduled payment.

In the event of death, life insurance covers the outstanding insured balance of all your insured personal lines of credit and insured personal loans as of the date of death.
There is a maximum benefit of $100,000 for life claims plus up to 6 months of interest for all insured personal lines of credit and personal loans combined.
Where two people are insured for the Account, the Life Insurance benefit is paid upon the first death only, and no other benefit will be payable.
For the personal lines of credit benefit payment where the outstanding balance is less than $60.00, one payment of that outstanding amount will be made once the claim is approved. For outstanding balance(s) greater than $60.00, a benefit payment of 3% of the outstanding balance will be made once the claim is approved.
For personal loans, if you become disabled or lose your job through no fault of your own and your claim is approved, creditor insurance will pay your combined contracted payments at the time of disability or job loss consisting of principal, interest and your insurance premium for all of your insured personal loans for the approved duration of the claim up to a maximum benefit.
The maximum monthly benefit is $2,000 for Disability claims and $2,000 for Job Loss claims; this applies to each insured personal line of credit and each insured personal loan.
In addition, there is a $50,000 lifetime maximum benefit for each applicant for Disability and Job Loss claims combined for all Simplii Financial personal lines of credit and a $50,000 lifetime maximum benefit for each applicant for Disability and Job Loss claims combined for all insured Simplii Financial personal loans.
