Mortgage Insurance : CIBC

User our online calculator to compare CIBC's offer. Shopping for mortgage insurance has never been simpler!

It is readily observed that individual insurance policies provide their policyholders with a flexibility that can’t be found with other the types of mortgage insurance that can be obtained for a mortgage.

In certain cases, this lack of flexibility can result in additional fees. For example, you cannot get disability insurance from CIBC by itself. They also require that you purchase life insurance.

Simply put, it’s impossible to only get disability insurance. An individual insurance policy, like that offered by InfoPrimes, will insure you in case of serious disease or disability, even if you don’t have a life insurance policy.

If you compare the two kinds of insurance, you will find that the products offered by InfoPrimes are more versatile, as you can tailor them as needed, to best suit your family and financial situation.

Clear conditions

If you have received treatment from a doctor prior to purchasing your mortgage insurance, it’s possible that you will run into trouble when it’s time for you to make a claim. In the case of group insurance policies, like those offered by banks, the risk selection is usually made at the time of the claim, which can lead to the invalidation of your insurance policy.

You should remember that, as with other financial institutions, it’s the bank that’s the owner and beneficiary of a group insurance policy. The consumer does not receive a certificate.

Compare prices between CIBC and InfoPrimes

To help you better plan your purchase and all of the related fees, InfoPrimes offers a mortgage insurance calculator. You can compare rates between the insurance that InfoPrimes offers, and that of many other banks, including CIBC..

Is mortgage insurance mandatory ?

No. According to Article 439 of the Act respecting the distribution of financial products and services :

“A distributor may not require the entering into of a subordinate contractual obligation for the customer to enter into a contract of insurance with the specified insurer. He may not exercise undue pressure on the client or use fraudulent tactics to induce him to purchase a financial product or service.”

Note that, under certain circumstances, financial institutions may ask you to obtain mortgage life insurance before they approve a loan. However, they cannot force you to obtain that insurance from their financial institution. See Article 22.

If your loan is for commercial or rental property and you have written confirmation which confirms that this life insurance (not applicable to disability) is required for acceptance of the loan, your premiums will be tax deductible under certain conditions. See Article 20-1 E.2.
