If you have a 25 year mortgage, when do you want your insurance to end?
You see, the majority of prospective insurance shoppers today go online to do research. According to LIMRA 80% of insurance shoppers do this, it might have even been how they found your site.
Unfortunately, most people who shop online don't get educated on the benefit of produts that fit their needs they just get a quote. They also do not get the benefit of how creativity an independant insurance advisor can be becasue they have choice as well as knowledge of the provisions of how a policy can be configured, exchanged & underwritten.
If you are incredibly lucky your advsior will use LDA and be able to illustrate some of these creative options easily and show them why they should pick the product that fits their time needs or how prices compare over the life of their mortgage.

Lets look at some case studies and show you how independant insurance advsiors equipped with LDA can give you options that will save you money over the time & get you the protection you need, particularly if you just bought a new house.
Classic T10 vs T20 vs T30
Lets start off with the most straigntforward LDA presentation. If our clients are triggerd to buy life insurance due to the purchase of a new home and we ask them when do you want the insurance to end. They will likely say well when the mortgage is paid off, they might have even given you a blank stare for a second because the answer might seems obvious. The reason we ask clients when they want the insurance to end is to establish a timeframe.
When we show the clients the sum of costs over 25-30 years between a T10 T20 & T30 and the clients have stated they need insurance till the mortgage is paid off they should see the value of longer term insurance as it generally has a lower overall cost for their specified needs.
Particularly savy clients might point out the concept of time value of money, so consider adding a present value(PV) calculation in LDA to handle this objection. It's not a bad idea to educate your clients on this concept anyway. The same effect also impacts the purchasing power of the benefit as well so clients may want to account for inflation and increase the face value.
Layered T10 vs 20 vs T30
Lets say your client resonates with the idea of taking out the risk and hassle of reapplying for covereage every 10 years and sees the value in longer term insurance but cash flow is an issue. Think about preparing a layered strategy, blend 1/3 Term Ten with 1/3 Term 20 with 1/3 Term 30. Specify that the term plans laps at their guaranteed renewal which will decrease the coverage. Idealy this decrease corisponds with the pay down of the Mortgage at the bank. This is an efficient way to ensure you have coverage till the mortgage is paid off without carrying excessive insurance coverage. I would highly reccomend using our needs analysis tool to make sure this strategy is suitable for a client you might find they need to keep the full insuraance amount in place because of other liabilities.
T10 Exchanged to a T20 at the 5th Year
Sometimes you might be in competition or there is no room at all for upsell due to client cash flow. Not to worry win the sale by showing why working with an independat advisor is still king. Let your clients know that by working with an independant advisor they can help you exchange that Term Ten to a Term 20 at the 5th year (effectivly making it a Term 25. This helps cash flow short term saves money overall and allows for coverage that can the length of the mortgage. To illustrate this in LDA simply use our Term Exchange Function
RBC - 25 Year Decreasing Term
Recently I was in a meeting with an RBC executive who mentioned their term product could have 99 layers! at first, I thought nice but when would I need that? and then I thought how great would that be as coverage for your mortgage. Create a Term 25 plan and every year decrease it by the same amount as you pay down your mortgage (to a minimum of 100k). This way you are being super efficient with your coverage and costs and unlike mortgage insurance from the bank where the benefit decreases and the price stays this same in this strategy our costs would decrease with the benefit decrease proportional to our loan. We modelled a similar scenario against a term exchange and the results speak for themselves.
