When you buy a home, you want security to go with it. Mortgage life insurance1 can help protect what’s likely one of your family’s most important assets by helping to provide financial protection for your mortgage loan in the event of your death.
Your CIBC Mortgage Loan balance is reduced or paid off up to $750,000.
On-the-spot approval with coverage beginning immediately if you are eligible to apply and answer “No” to the health questions on the insurance application and your CIBC Mortgage Loan is approved.
You don’t need to make separate payments for your insurance premiums — they are added to your mortgage loan payment and automatically adjusted if you change the frequency of your CIBC Mortgage Loan payment.
30-day review period
If you change your mind, you can cancel the insurance within the first 30 days of receiving the Certificate of Insurance and any premiums collected will be refunded.
No premium is charged until your mortgage loan is funded.
Prior coverage recognition
If you are declined for insurance coverage on your new mortgage loan but you had insurance coverage on the mortgage loan you paid out, you may be eligible to have a portion of your new mortgage loan insured under “Prior coverage recognition.”
