A lifetime of benefits, not a lifetime of payments, with Whole Life Guaranteed 20 Pay Insurance

Life insurance can be the foundation for a family's financial protection. Desjardins Insurance offers permanent life coverage that not only helps your family prepare for the unexpected, but also builds cash values you may use during your lifetime.

Whole Life Guaranteed 20 Pay

The coverage lasts. The premiums don't. This coverage can be completely paid for in 20 years. If purchased early enough in life, it'll help you avoid paying premiums during your retirement. That's the beauty of Whole Life Guaranteed 20 Pay coverage.

Whole Life Guaranteed 20 Pay coverage is ideal for a child—in addition to starting insurance coverage they’ll need as an adult, the coverage earns cash value, which generally grow tax-deferred.
