Maturity Guarantees and Death Benefits
Features like maturity guarantees protect a percentage of the value of your investment at the end of the investment term. This percentage varies depending on the segregated fund you choose. Death benefit guarantees ensure a specific percentage of your investment passes onto your beneficiary if you die. Like maturity guarantees the percentage varies based on the segregated fund.
Provide Security for Your Loved Ones
