What Is Personal Protection Insurance?

Personal protection insurance helps individuals and families cope financially when certain unexpected events occur. When a person passes away, that can sometimes have a significant impact on a family, however when a person dies without being insured with life insurance, sometimes that can compound the situation even more. These things are not always in our control, however personal protection cover, such as life insurance, can help us take some of that control back financially. There are personal protection insurance policies that will payout in the event of death, a terminal illness, critical illness, and also in the event of being signed off work medically.
