What are optional accident benefits?
August 10, 2021

You have the option to increase limits for income replacement, medical care, caregiver benefits, death and funeral benefits, and more. Here is what you can add:

  • Dependent care benefits: This will cover up to $75 per week for your first dependent and $25 for each additional dependent. You can only claim this benefit if you were employed at the time of the accident and you have to pay for additional childcare expenses due to injuries sustained.
  • Indexation: This gives you an annual adjustment for yearly inflation rates. Adjustments are made in accordance with the Consumer Price Index of Canada.

More options include:

  • Up to $130,000 in additional medical expenses
  • Additional death and funeral expenses up to $50,000, raises dependents to $20,000
  • Catastrophic impairment up to $1 million
  • Extra income replacement

Keep in mind that increasing your limits will increase your premiums. Contact us to see how much they will rise as a result.
