Foresters Financial Launches Three New Non-Participating Whole Life Products in Canada

Toronto, ON (Dec. 14 2016) – Foresters Financial™, an international financial services provider, has launched three new non-participating whole life products(1): Non-Par Whole Life, Simplified Non-Par Whole Life and Child Non-Par Whole Life. The launch is part of an ambitious new strategy to significantly grow Foresters’ product portfolio in Canada over the next decade.

“There’s a great energy and anticipation around the organization’s future,” said Rob Baboth, Vice President of Sales, Foresters Financial Canada. “We are committed to providing our distribution partners with competitively priced products to help them meet the protection needs of Canadian families. And the Foresters member benefits gives clients so much more – it’s a winning combination that is unique in the Canadian marketplace.”

These new permanent products were designed to appeal to the family market with competitive premiums, guaranteed cash values(2) and valuable built-in features.

  • Non-Par Whole Life: offers flexible options including Joint First-to-die or Joint Last-to-die and up to $5,000,000 of affordable permanent protection with preferred underwriting for coverage above $250,000.
  • Simplified Non-Par Whole Life: provides up to $100,000 of reliable, permanent coverage with no medical exams required.
  • Child Non-Par Whole Life: offers affordable coverage today that can help protect the child’s future insurability and provides guaranteed cash value that they can access later in life.

All three products include $1,000 in bereavement assistance for the beneficiaries. Non-Par Whole Life and Simplified Non-Par Whole Life come with Advance Medical’s Expert Medical Opinion Program,(3) an authoritative second opinion on medical issues from some of the world’s leading experts. Child Non-Par Whole Life has a built-in feature that waives the premium if the owner dies in an accident.(4)

In addition to these valuable features, insured clients will be Foresters members and have access to Foresters Member Benefits(5) for the primary insured and their immediate family members. These benefits, many of which are complimentary, currently include competitive academic scholarships, financial counseling and discounted legal services.

Foresters new non-participating whole life products are available as of December 12, 2016.
