What insurance coverage options does TD offer?

TD offers life insurance products as well as coverage for homes, cars and travel. Below are the main categories of TD Insurance products.

Life insurance

  • Term life. This type of insurance allows you to buy coverage for a specific time period. TD offers terms of 10 and 20 years. It also offers a product it calls Term 100 that offers lifetime coverage for a locked-in cost. Term life insurance is generally the most affordable type of life insurance.
  • Accidental death. This insurance specifically covers you in the event you die in an accident. The coverage amounts available are generally lower than for regular life insurance, but it is often easier to qualify and more affordable.

Health insurance

  • Critical illness. This insurance covers costs associated with a sudden, life-altering illness. You receive a lump-sum payment.
  • Critical accident. Similar to critical illness insurance, this coverage provides you with a lump-sum payment if you are severely injured in an accident.
  • Accident disability. This insurance helps provide you with an income if you become injured and can’t work due to a serious accident.

Other insurance options

  • Travel. TD offers various types of travel insurance. Coverage options include an annual plan or a single trip plan and both help to pay for emergency medical assistance.
  • Home and property. This insurance covers your home and belongings from damage or theft. There are policies available for homeowners, tenants, condo owners and for those who wish to ensure a seasonal property like a cottage.
  • Car. This insurance covers your personal vehicle in the event it is damaged in an accident or stolen.
  • Leisure. This is a broad category of insurance that covers your personal property in the event of accidental damage or theft. Items you can insure include motorhomes, motorcycles, snowmobiles and RVs.
