Applying for insurance policies
It does not matter what type of insurance policy you are applying for; life,
accidental, house, or anything else.
It is probably best to do this with a reputable insurance company.
If you choose to go with an independent insurance agent, then you need to
ensure that you know this person well enough to trust them with your private
details such as date of birth, Social Insurance number and more.
Whichever alternative you choose, ask for an electronic copy to be sent to
you so that you can read for yourself what you are about to sign.
When you are about to sign, best to take along someone that you trust so
that they can read the hard copy to you so that you can ensure that your
electronic copy matches what is being read.
